I am excited to share that I will be joining some amazing artists in a group effort to bring 1000's of Jack O'Lanterns to life in the NY, NJ, Boston and Los Angeles areas.
During September and October, hundreds of skills artitisants (including me) will be happily illustrating and carving pumpkins, some weighing over 100 lbs! Please check dates and times, and plan on visiting the event.
If you want me to let you know when and where I will be doing a LIVE Pumpkin Sculpting Demonstration, please enter your email over there --------->

***All New for 2016!*** Returning to New York and Los Angeles and debuting in New Jersey and Boston is the most iconic, truly unique family-friendly fall event, RISE of the Jack O’Lanterns! Come see thousands of hand-carved illuminated jack o’lanterns creatively arranged along a scenic walking path and set to a musical score designed to bring out the Halloween spirit in visitors of all ages! The various new and exciting themes created for 2016 are sure to impress both RISE newbies and returning RISE fans.
This year, we’re DOUBLING the number of intricately carved 100+ pound pumpkins on display which our artists spend 10-15 hours on per pumpkin to illustrate and carve to perfection. We’re also bringing back our iconic multi-pumpkin structures that consist of dozens of illuminated jack o’lanterns assembled into life-sized pieces of art. You’ll see classic fan-favorites like life-sized dinosaurs, dragons, and safari animals, as well as a number of new structures featuring time-honored characters from some favorite movies, including one that will make you feel like you’re in a galaxy far, far, away.
