This gallery displays the work I did for northern Virginia's finest Halloween attraction... the Haunted Forest! The event is hosted every year by Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, VA for the duration of October.

In 2007 I answered a Craigslist ad for actors to dress up and scare patrons at the fledgling attraction, and when the owners discovered I was an artist they put me to work decorating tombstones the very next day! I returned year after year to work on different things as the attraction grew, and those autumn days painting horror props in the park will definitely be some of the happiest days of my life!
