Artist's Bio - Kerry Lloyd-Schmidt of Papermoon Gallery

I am a fourth generation folk artist. I have been selling my art since fourth grade where I peddled my bread dough ornaments to galleries and stores. The bread dough transitioned in to other types of clays as I got older.

I'm a wife, a MOM, a Honey (that's what my grandchildren call me. How lucky am I? Very!).

I have been needle felting for the last 12 years. Needle felting was a more portable medium than papier-mâché or polymer clay which I had done most of my life... I had to evolve as a mom to four active on the go kids. My children are now older and I am still loving the art.

I was a former Halloween and Vine show partner and have taken on a new venture with "a Bewitching Fete" - Halloween art and curiosities show featuring the best folk artists in the country. For more info about me or the show please visit my Etsy site and my Bewitching Fete website.
