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.

Ms. Beatrice Bunny Eager to help anyway she can.

Hello Everyone,
As I was busy creating Ms. Beatrice Bunny Japan suffered a massive catastrophic event.  It is very difficult to stay focused on creating when so many of our brothers and sisters in Japan are suffering something I cannot even wrap my head around.  The images I have seen are so devastating that clean up and return to any semblance of normalcy feels so daunting.  My heart and prayers go out to everyone in Japan.

As I was listing Beatrice Bunny on EBAY tonight I found that EBAY has a way where you can contribute  part of your sale to Japan's Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Both Beatrice and I are so happy that we may be able to contribute in a small way. She is always ready to be of service and I would be so thrilled to be a small part in making things a tiny bit better, hopefully, through my art.
Please come visit Ms. Beatrice Bunny on EBAY .  She would love to meet you : )
Have a wonderful day!
