About the Artist
Hi!

Welcome to "Gone to the Dogs/SM Designs"

Let me start by telling you a little about myself . My name is Sheryl Morrow. I live in the wonderful state of Missouri with my loving fur Baby girl Kayla . My beautiful cat Buttons (pictured below) passed away in 2005. She has been a blessing and a joy for the 17 years that she was with me.My Love Shadow (pictured below) Passed away in May of 2012. He was my best friend and a wonderful loving boy. My Lucky kitty (pictured below) passed away May of 2013 she was the queen of the house, She lived a very good long life of 20 years. I spend my time sculpting my clay dogs making Artist Soft plush Bears and Dogs and Primitive Annie Dolls and have now started drawing as well working a little in Reborning dolls.

I have a wonderful loving family, my Parents, brother and sister-in-law and my very beautiful niece and very handsome nephew.

My hobby, of course is working with polymer clay. I also like to scrapbook, spend time working in the yard, sitting on my deck relaxing and watching the dogs play, I also like to just sit and read a good book. I also enjoy spending time with my niece and nephew.
I started working with polymer clay over 22 years ago when my sister in law signed us up for a class. I WAS HOOKED from then on. My business started when my family and friends encouraged me to sell on eBay. I designed and sculpted a Black Bear series that went quite well.
I then decided to sculpt one of my greatest loves-- Dogs. I began with my own black lab Shadow. From there I then sculpted a few other breeds of dogs and listed them on eBay. They were a hit.I have now designed and sculpted over 30 different dog breeds that have been on eBay and have done custom orders as well. I continue to design and sculpt new dog breeds and other furry critters in my home studio.

I also donate my sculptures to local and out of state Animal Rescue societies. If you would like to make a request, please feel free to contact me. I try to honor all request if my schedule permits.
In 2007 I was crusing the internet like I always do and started seeing wonderful needle sculped art. Well it was very interesting to me so I did some more research bought some books and started on a new adventure. I taught myself the art and off I went. I love to needle felt it is just wonderful. It takes many hours to creatate each soft sculpture. I have done quit a few dogs that have sold. There will be more to come for sure.

Recently this past year I again searching the internet ran across Artist Bears. Now this was interesting since I do collect a lot of bear items. Many years ago I made bears from purchased patterns that I gave away to family and friends as gifts and even sold a few. Making bears where familar to me so I did some research and bought some books and found out what Artist Bears were. I was amazed how far Bears have come over the years. I thought I can do this, I started designing my own patterns in March 2008 and bought some high quality faux fur and Mohair and just went crazy. I am still quite new at desinging and creating these little ones, but I am sure that I will continue to design and make lots more. There is a wealth of information still to learn and my head is just swimming with new ideas.
I want to take a second to thank my family and
friends for their love, encouragement, support and ideas. Without them I would not have had the opportunity to pursue the crafts that I love and enjoy.

I want to also thank my wonderful furry
kids for they are the true inspiration.
"My love for our furry friends will always be in my heart and shown sculpted from my own hands" - Sheryl Morrow
I want to thank all of my customers for there support through the years. I have met so many wonderful people through eBay and the internet.
You are all wonderful!!!!
