Brian East and I collaborate on so many art projects, I figured he'd better have a place of his own on the website. Despite the fact that he was asked to "pursue other interests" rather than continue playing trombone in his Elementary School band (he always had a few extra notes to play at the end of every song), he cannot escape his artistic foundations and finds himself compulsively creating in multiple media. Perhaps his most unusual medium was when he spent 20 years bringing lifelike, natural appearance and expressions to the dead as a professional embalmer. Now he works more conventionally, carving stone, bending willow, and working with me on needle felted projects. He's deceptively handsome and charming. He is also witty, but don't encourage him. Honest. This corner of my website is for Brian, it is his to edit and though I will check it from time to time to clarify blatant exaggerations and even litigous statements, I can only hope your sense of humor prevails.

Clown Pumpkin!

I've made a few pumpkins. The Anglerfish pumpkin with the red eyes and dangling candy corn, the one eyed, one horned, flying purple pumpkin eater, the Elvis pumpkin... but they were all just missing that certain aire of menace that only a smiling clown can bring to the party.

We work well together

Amy and I don't have to work at it. We start something, for example; a snowman on a park bench on Thanksgiving morning. Before long we're adding a defensive posture of crossed arms to the man and a somewhat resigned turkey beside him. We wouldn't have done this by ourselves, and if we did, it wouldn't be a shared memory. We called this, "Conversation with Dinner."

2011 Moose


Not that I intend to make one every year... This moose was started in August '10, spent the winter hiding chickadees and was finished in June '11. I like the antlers on this one better than my previous moose.
