Welcome to Dismal…

Hi, I’m Gwen Forrester; an artist and instrument maker in the hills of middle Tennessee.

Please check out my blog to see all the various things I have been working on, taking photos of, and wondering about.

You can see guitars and basses currently for sale on the available axes page, peruse my past works on the guitarchives, and learn more about them, and my process, on my artist’s statement

I also take lots of photos of my surroundings here in Dismal, and the skies above. For stars, planets, nebulae, and other astronomy stuff, see dismal skies. For much smaller and closer things like moss, bugs, and flowers, see other photography.
