Fine Art and Illustration works influenced by pop cultural imagery, Halloween themes and B-rated horror films.
The world that I am creating is character-based with a quirky approach. The narratives in many instances begin to break free from the painted structures and enter the physical world through sculptural and animated forms. Each piece tells a portion of an overlapping and arching story, combined they tell of a greater whole. Through this work I invite the viewer to enter the whimsical dream that these characters present.goomylandstudios.tumblr.com

The Holidays have always held a special place in my heart. It is during these times that I believe we have a chance to return to being a child, if only for a couple of days. For me no other Holiday holds the magic, mystery, wonder and excitement of childhood more than Halloween. As a collector of Vintage Halloween art it was only natural that I find myself returning to vintage decorations and publications for inspiration.
Combining traditional papier-mâché techniques and using recycled and reclaimed materials including vintage finds. I create unique, original handmade holiday art. I try to briefly take you back in time to the joy of seeing classic holidays through the eyes of a child again and hopefully touching you with a smile.www.hohohalloween.com

A little Evil goes a long way! Every one of our handmade pumpkin sculptures is made with an added pinch of "evil dirt" from the fireplace from the actual Evil Dead cabin here in Tennessee. We also make keepsake jewelry vials filled with a small amount of the same "evil dirt". Whether you want to wear some evil around your neck or celebrate it with an Evil Pumpkin we can fit the bill!www.etsy.com/shop/evilpumpkins
Many people ask me about the name Kniffen Hollow, it is the name of a road in the town I was born, most likely after the family who settled there long ago. The road is very old, lined with twisted ancient trees that lead to the Hollow. It’s a quiet, peaceful place steeped in history with just the right touch of spookiness. Which is also the best way to describe my art. Many of my character dolls are based on true stories, myths and legends. I'm also inspired by classic literature and by those who weave tales of carnivorous carnivals and haunted graveyards, footsteps on stairs and scratchings on doors, howlings and shriekings, groanings and creakings and clanking of chains, of hooded monks and headless horsemen, swirling mists and shrouded spectres, monsters under beds or under the stairs, vampires and zombies, bats and spiders and deathwatch beetles, of vanished corpses and mummies curses. Any of which can spark an idea at any moment. Many hours of thought and hand stitching goes into each character I create. In fact every part of the doll is hand-stitched. I like to use old and new fabrics, especially anything that is unique, or quirky, or a little bit spooky. My characters are all one-of-a-kind, once I've created them, that inspired energy is spent and I have to move on to something new.kniffenhollow.blogspot.com
