Welcome to ' "Daydreams and Nightmares";, designs by Gloria Bowlin. Since childhood, my main artistic medium has been fabric, with painting, sculpting, embellishing, & collaging thrown in!
Over the years, I have produced patterns, sold my designs at Trade Shows, have presented at juried folk art shows among some of the most talented artisans, & licensed artwork and folk art 'characters' for reproduction companies.
The past 10 yrs. my daughter & I have owned 3 'brick & mortar' Vintage/Antiques & Decorative Arts shops together, for which I created folk art for sale locally.
Since retireing from the retail business, I am EXCITED to return to my greatest passion: CREATING! The designing of 'Holiday', & esp. Halloween themed characters has always been HUGE for me, and it is my main focus now. My studio is filled with Gothic & Halloween related Decor, so I am inspired daily to create one of a kind & story-lined characters & props . I trully love what I do, & hope others will love them also!
