My Halloween Village

Villages made the jump from Christmas to Halloween in 1998 when Department 56 introduced their first Halloween building. I created my first village in 2003 and since then, "HAUNTSVILLE" has become an engrossing hobby where I have learned many new skills like painting, carpentry, engineering, electric work, lighting and even photography. Take a look at my work.

The art of making villages involves arranging miniature buildings, trees and figures into a dioramas of lights and sounds.  Artists carve elaborate foam bases, then add scenic elements. Some painstakingly recreate lifelike naturalistic scenes down to the grass, sidewalks and streets. Others, like myself, prefer a more abstract approach. Here's what I've learned and how to make one.

My Village Goes National

My work was featured in two village enthusiast magazines, Village D-lights and Collector Editions. I was so fortunate to be able to share my work, have a sense of appreciation, and a wonderful opportunity to connect with other village artists.
