October Gallery Night Featuring Tge Twisted Pumpkin (aka Mandy Koepp)

Join DARE in welcoming The Twisted Pumpkin (aka Mandy Koepp) for another fun evening of art, wine, GF treats by Atuvava, and tarot readings by Sage Tarot at our October Gallery Night!

Mandy was born and raised in the North Metro. Music and Art were an important part of her life from an early age but it wasn’t until high school that she became interested in sculpting. At 15 she took a new class called Contemporary Arts. The class focused on the non-traditional art classes such as screen printing, collage making, glass blowing and making clay beads with polymer clay. That is when Mandy fell in love with Polymer Clay. She took a trip to Ben Franklin and bought a book about making Polymer Clay Dragon’s and Fairies and a bunch of Sculpey Clay and was hooked ever since.

At 23 she lived in Seattle for a short time as was introduced to the Pop Surrealism/Underground Contemporary art movement. She fell in love with Low Brow style and combining that with her over the top love of Halloween and The Twisted Pumpkin was born.

She is constantly trying new techniques and styles to further her sculpting skills and loves being around other artists and musicians to soak up as much creativity as possible.
