About Me

My photo
Welcome, my name is Sylvia Smiser. I am a self taught artist. I enjoy creating one of a kind art dolls and sculpted figures. Vintage Halloween styled artwork and Dia de los Muertos art dolls is what comes naturally to me and what I am most passionate about creating. I am a proud member of the wonderful art groups EHAG (Eclectic Halloween Artists Guild) and PFATT (Primitive Folk Art Talk & Tea). I am a participating artist at Ghoultide Gathering. I am honored to have been published in Art Doll Quarterly, Dolls magazine, Somerset Studio Gallery and Celebrate 365 Magazine. I am also a Physical Therapist and Mama to 15 year old Boy/Girl Twins. My husband is a wonderful man who is very supportive of my art and together with our two doggy fur kids we make one happy, busy family.

Packing for Ghoultide Gathering tonight!

I have been waiting for this event since last year! It is the most magical event you  could ever experience. It is decorated for Halloween and so many uber talented artists are there to share their creations.
It is going to be even better this year because in the course of a year I have met and made many good friends on Facebook who will be there. Many are artists while others are collectors. I am really looking forward to meeting them all.
If you will be at GG, please stop me if you see me to say hello and/or share a ((Halloween Hug)). I will be wearing an orange and black crocheted cloche hat that I have added one of my pumpkin faces to. It's just a little face in the middle of the black flower. Oh and I will also be wearing clothing along with that (oops giggle). It would be way too cold otherwise ;)
I hope to have pictures and will report back when I get back.
Halloween Wishes and Ghoultide Dreams,

My Halloween Tea Party Swap Doll for Cyndi of Holiday Sparkle

"When I said make me tea, I meant make me some tea not make me into tea, you stupid wand!"

This is the swap dolly I made for Cyndi. Thank goodness she loved it! I was afraid it may be too creepy. My kids were not fond of her teeth.  They felt that she would eat them. LOL.  I can't help it I like spooky things ;)
