Faces that speak to you, expressions and dress that speaks volumes, these dolls are nothing short of incredible.
I've always been an artist ever since I could hold a pencil. I started painting and was doing portraits. It was a natural jump for me to do sculpting faces and characters. Sculpting has taken over my life!
Sheila relates that her whole family has always been very creative, especially in the music and arts. Ever since she had her first child, she always found a way to earn income that would enable her to stay home with the kids. So she and her sister started doing craft fairs and shows. Although Sheila no longer does craft shows, her sister still helps her out at Ghoultide Gathering.
Sheila would bring some of her sculpted pieces to the craft shows and realized that those pieces did not belong at that type of show. Soon she was selling her art in a gallery in Chicago, as well as a few pieces on eBay.
Scott Smith saw her work and contacted Sheila about displaying at Ghoultide Gathering. That's when it really took off. It was a perfect fit. Sheila loves being in the one big show and working towards that all year long.
I just want my dolls to show how much I love what I do. I have fun doing what I do and I want that to show in every piece!
