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.

Ghoultide Gathering 2015 was Phenomenal!

Ghoultide Gathering was a huge success! Here we all are before the doors opened. Everyone did an outstanding job with their displays and their art work. This is an amazing Halloween party! I know I can't do it justice in words but imagine walking in to an old barn with old Halloween music in the background, sweet treats at every booth and the best one of a kind Halloween art work in the world. It is just an amazing experience all around. My fellow Ghoulies really know how to put on a show!

I enjoyed meeting everyone that came by my booth and am so very humbled and thankful that my art work was so well received for the second year in a row. 
Thank you!

Last but not least, I would like to say a very heartfelt Thank You to show producers Scott Smith and Bill Gilmore for their incredible work in putting on a magical show that flows seamlessly and for allowing me to be part of it, a huge honor. 

I am happily exhausted and will be glad to get some rest and catch up on household stuff but I'm also already excited for next year's show. In the meantime, I will be having a web sale soon! 
Check back for details.
