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.

A Valentine's Day Piece, The Queen of Hearts, Up for Grabs!

For this month's PFATT Marketplace I have created this piece called the Queen of Hearts. There is only one available so if you would like to give yourself or your sweetheart a one of a kind Valentine let me know.  

Many have asked me where I come up with the faces I sculpt.  I find inspiration everywhere.  I go to the mall and watch people.  I look at old advertising images or antique postcards.  I also, collect antique photos from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
This little sweetie was inspired by this vintage image, with an Anaboo Creations twist. Maybe next year I will make him.

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy Valentines Day 2013!
