We asked one of our favorite artists, Seattle-based linocut printmaker and painter Jennifer Ament, how she’d translate her Northwest-influenced designs to pumpkin carvings—and were wowed by the results. Inspired by the landscape and wildlife near her favorite spot at Lake Sammamish, Ament’s artful carvings trump the idea that Halloween decor has to feel kitschy. (And serve as proof that it always works to find creative design ideas in our natural surroundings.)
