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.

Happy New Year!

Dear Friends, I just wanted to say Happy New Year and wish you all the best in the coming year! 

I know I have not made a post all month and I apologize.  I was out of town for a couple of weeks. 

I have had a wonderful December, having taken some time out to visit my family in California for Christmas and enjoy some happy times instead of mournful times. 
In reflecting on 2012 I have been challenged with  heart ache and loss. I think many of us have faced lots of painful life events this year.  Through all the challenges faced in 2012, 
 I have to focus on all of the blessings. 
The blessings after all are what life is all about. 
I hope you take the time to focus on your blessings this last evening of 2012. 
It makes for a much brighter day!

May you all have a Wonderful, Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year!
From my heart to yours.
