One of the residents of Earthgate: is a “Nightrider”- One who works for the village power company and is a caretaker of the fireflies that are placed into the street lamps. They ride the tall night creatures, known as"claw-horns". These creatures,also known as “leaf eaters”, are very gentle as long as they only come out at night because their large eyes allow them to see the smallest detail in the dark but daylight is very painful. Their long legs enable them to eat the top, most tender, tree shoots and gives the rider the needed height to reach to the top of lamp posts.

Nightrider’s exposed parts are prosculpt clay and he has a soft body, glass eyes and mohair hair. He is wearing his gourd hard hat,rabbit fur boots over woolen pants, burlap shirt under his leather vest and carries his knife. The creature is made from gourds and Aves Apoxie, glass eyes and devils claw(detachable) horns and frog leather saddle.

I have been a painter and sculptor for over 43 years professionally and after all this time, I still love it. It is challenging, makes me think about the world and keeps me connected to life.
My art is a mix of realism and impressionism with a bit of humor thrown in.
I am available for commission work- just ask!

    Varry, This was one of the major recent pieces for my “Isle of Appleshire”. I love gourds……they are SO cool. I like to use natural things in these pieces as much as I can…after all, they don’t have a lot of modern conveniences on the island! lol
