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.

Eudora the Witch is in DOLLS Magazine!

So much love went into making Eudora.  I really enjoyed picking out the antique fabrics and lace trims to fashion her dress and bloomers.  The sculpting of her face was so natural it's as if I already knew her and I was just getting rid of the excess clay to reveal the kind eyes and the weathered face I already knew was there.  I truly enjoyed creating her. 
So you can imagine my excitement to find out that Eudora was chosen to be in the October issue of DOLLS Magazine! 

There she is...

She is in some amazing company!

A BIG Thank You to DOLLS!

Eudora is still available.  Her auction ends tomorrow night 9/23/2012.

Thank you for stopping in! 
Have a beautiful first week of Fall!
