Caroline’s artistic talents were first recognized with a four year Art Scholarship award to a Private Art School at the age of 13. Working closely as an apprentice to the late Parson’s School of Design graduate, Vivian Noyes Fikus in her studio at the Nutley Art Center. Caroline studied a wide array of mediums including chalk, charcoal soft or hard, graphite, pastel, pen and ink, watercolour, acrylics, oils, and experimented on numerous types of bases.
Caroline applied her artistry in creating porcelain doll reproductions. She was a member of the Doll Artisan Guild, and attended Apprentice Seminars for the fundamentals and techniques of making reproductions of antique dolls. Caroline’s modern reproduction dolls won Blue ribbons in Doll shows in N.J. She later directed her doll artistry towards creating Reborn Berenguers as well as applying the “re-borning” techniques to the limited edition collectible artist dolls. She mastered the application of acrylics as well as heat set painting to achieve real life-likeness in her reborn babies. The dolls were auctioned on Ebay and travelled as far as Surrey, England to their new homes.
Caroline also enjoys sewing! She has made Rag dolls and Teddy Bears to designing one-of-a-kind pet clothing for the discriminating doggie! Inspired by her adopted Chihuahua, Chico, she created unique harnesses and dresses. From crocheting newborn infant hats to sculping Mermaids with cernit clay, there is always something artistic being created in Sneffca’s World.
Caroline has creating needle-felted collectible interpretations. These little sculptures made out of 100% wool. It is amazing how a clump of wool can be manipulated into an art sculpture! Each piece is a one-of-a-kind work of art! These sculptures should not be considered toys, and are not suitable for children or pets to play with.
As always, Caroline puts her entire heart into her creations and hopes that one of them will capture your heart!
Thank you for visiting my world… Sneffca’s World!
