Over the next few weeks I'll be featuring Halloween Guild Artists. Don't be fooled by our title, we love Christmas too, as you'll see by Jeannine's artwork! She can be found at www.bywayofsalem.etsy.com.

"My passion is creating OOAK Halloween & Holiday art, and other sweet things. An eclectic mix of whimsy, wicked and sweet! You'll find clay and papier mache sculptures, painted signs, little quilts, greeting cards, prims, cute critters and funny characters, garden items, ornaments, and a bit of jewelry as well. I feature Halloween and other holiday goodies all year long - so don't be surprised to see pumpkins and witches in July!
My mediums include paper clay, polymer clay, papier mache, acrylics, watercolor, colored pencils, fabrics, and other assorted ephemera.
Each item is created by me, then handpainted, or handstitched. No OOAK is ever duplicated, such as my sculptures. All my wood items are cut by the artist (me!) and painted without stencils (unless I create it myself).
I take great pride in bringing you top quality, handcrafted items to proudly display and collect. Many pieces take up to 2 weeks to finish, so please be patient as I slowly stock my shelves. All items are created in a smoke-free environment, signed by the artist (me again!), packaged very carefully, and sent on their merry way to you!
And of course, all my items are created in the spirit of whimsical fun, with a bunch of love tossed in!
Selling my art enables me to donate a portion of my sales to help animals in need, something that gives me great joy! Check out my blog at www.bywayofsalem.blogspot.com to find out more."
