Artistry Most Wicked

Another Friday in the great month of October and just one day more until The CikNis will infest the mind, body and soul of all who enter. A number of sources contributed to The CikNis in various ways and today we turn the spotlight to an artist who created a wicked sextet of characters to be featured throughout the poisoned halls of our haunted house.

Stefani Lawrence is an artist and a friend I met while working at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. Stefani possesses an irreverent wit, a keen intelligence and as I would come to discover uncommon artistic talent — she is a veritable frenzy of creativity. So, when a bag of styrofoam heads was delivered to The CikNis by our favorite junker, I knew just the person to ask to turn these plain, lifeless faces into vibrant creatures of the night.

Stefani didn’t disappoint, she thoughtfully created a gang of ghouls each with their own personality and the end result is a beautiful array of the macabre and eerie which will serve as welcome additions to The CikNis.

In addition to Senoirita’s Last Tango this rouge’s gallery is comprised of Crow-magnum-Man, The Widower’s Bride, Button Eyes, The Doubleheader and the apple of my eye, Lagoon Lady.
