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.

Winston O'Lantern a Gentleman Pumpkin

Hello Everyone, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I am in the greatest of moods because it is beginning to feel, smell, and taste like Fall here in Central Illinois.  
I have been busy creating new art work with Halloween and Day of the Dead in mind.  I also recently found out that Miss Vanessa's Halloween Blog Party will be Oct. 22nd.  All of the details are not ironed out yet but I will keep you posted as I will definitely be participating.  I have already begun working on my GIVEAWAY Piece for this Magical Event!

I have also begun preparations for my yearly pilgrimage to Northville, MI for The Amazing Ghoultide Gathering. It looks like I may be going solo this year but that is OK as I have many Ghoulie friends that will be there.  If you are going please send me a message as I love to meet all my blog land friends. 

Lastly, I also want to introduce you to Mr. Winston O'Lantern.  He is currently available on the PFATT Marketplace for $55.00.
He is a charming chap that would be happy to light up your home for the Fall Holidays.

Have a wonderful Evening my dear friends!
