About Me

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.

It's My Birthday so here is a gift for YOU! Sign Up for the GIVEAWAY Here.

Happy Sunday Everyone! 
It's my birthday today, a day I share with famous musicians like Elvis and David Bowie. 
It's a day for fun, rest, and relaxation. 
Or I may just organize that closet I've been meaning to get to. 
I am so full of joy right now.  My husband and my twins have let me sleep in today and I got a wonderful breakfast made for me this morning. I also got a sculpting DVD set I have been wanting from my hubby. Then I visit facebook and I am overwhelmed by all the wonderful Birthday wishes!  Today I also found out I was one of the lucky winners of Carolee Clark's giveaway so I will be receiving a lucky birthday gift from her this week!
I am feeling so fortunate that I would like to host a Birthday Giveaway!
Please leave me a comment below and I will put your name in for a chance to win this little pumpkin witch painting.  She is an Anaboo Creations original. 
If you share about this giveaway on Facebook or on your blog leave me another comment with a link to the share and I will enter you 3 more times. 
The winner will be drawn in one week. I will announce the winner next Sunday evening. 
Please don't forget to leave me a way to get a hold of you in case you are the winner.
Have a wonderful week!
