Selected for National Show!!!


I've been selected!!!

I cannot begin to say what an honor this is and how special I feel...to be chosen by two such accomplished Artists and a jury of other artists is beyond words....Please read on...

Meet the Producers

Robert Eberz

Most artists can relate to the fact that the urge to create begins at a very early age and I am no exception. I was born in San Antonio Texas and graduated from the University of Texas in 1993 where I studied painting and art history. I began my career in art working for the film industry in Hollywood California as a production designer. My journey eventually led me to become a children's book illustrator. I have illustrated over 15 children's books, and I am the licensed artist for the Splat the Cat ICR books. I own and operate Grimm Grinz Studio where I like to satiate my love for all things Halloween by creating character sculptures.

Dennis Haynes

I was born and raised in Texas and I'm living in beautiful Kenmore, WA.  I come from a creative family and was exposed to gardening, music, art and crafting at an early age.  I studied architecture/art/horticulture in college and have worked in several industries, including Real Estate development and Corporate Events.

Currently, I am a co-owner of Halloween & Vine in Petaluma, CA, I work an 8-5 job, make creations in my studio, Runamuck Studio , and am co-owner of Hallowbaloo.

Please come to http://www.thehallowbaloo.com/ to read all 
about it!!!  Also please go to Halabaloo Facebook and like their page.  There you will see some of these fabulous Artists works and get a dynamic view of the show as it develops and moves toward September 20th 2014 and the culmination of this wonderful adventure.
