Each doll is alive with personality and unique in the intricate creation of each tiny element that forms Sheri’s special characters. Sheri has been busy creating an inspiring new body of work – ‘Taken By Night’ is a deliciously dark and seductive Vampire inspired series which will capture the hearts of all collectors.
“Growing up in a religious home I have memories of sneaking in to watch old vampire movies. I’ve always been intrigued at how we all love that rush of fright and attraction to danger. As I grew older, my love of reading and period pieces brought on a great fondness for Bram Stoker and Anne Rice novels. The seduction of Dracula is an alluring and irresistible tale representing the beautiful side of evil. In this collection, I focused on characters that are drawn in and controlled against their will and desires. “Taken By Night” is the story of dark temptations and living with those consequences forever.” ~ Sheri DeBow
