We remember with LOVE ...

Remembering  Dustin Poche'

                                From Autumn Brilliance, Fall 2023 issue

He was a deeply beloved and favorite fine artist of our time.

Dustin was a member of the prestigious guild known as NIADA (National Institute of American Doll Artists) and truly one of the most spectacular creators of Halloween-styled characters we've ever seen, especially witches (Editor's note: I am proud to own "Juniper,"one of his original witches, in my personal collection; photo below).

Autumn Brilliance was honored to have had the privilege of showcasing his artistry as our Spotlight Artist in our Fall 2023 issue which, sadly, he never got the chance to see, as he passed away from cancer in February of that year.

We will always grieve for this loss but the joy we get from viewing his artistry will last forever!
