Dee (Dawn) Schiller (oddfae) Profile
About / Bio
Dawn Schiller (Dee) is a self-taught artist who is always learning and experimenting. She is the author of the book, "FaeMaker — Making Character Figures with Polymer Clay" from Impact Books (2012).
Her award-winning work is internationally collected and has appeared in shows, galleries, books, and magazines, in both the US and Europe. Dawn exhibits yearly at Comic Con International in San Diego, and at other pop culture/media related shows around the US.
A self-employed sculptor full-time for fifteen years, Dawn has been teaching online and in-person for seven years. She has recently begun sculpting in leather and fiber in addition to her work with various types of clay.
Dawn collects Halloween socks, interesting hats and loves Faerie, Halloween and geekdom. A full-time self employed fine artist/sculptor, she lives in Southern California in a cluttered condo with husband/science teacher/fencer/coach Greg, four kittykids, two tarantulas, a gecko, a turtle and any other critters Greg’s students happen to find wandering loose.
Dee has sculpted, made dolls or drawn since she was a little kid in the rural Midwest (there really are faeries in the Woods)...she’s an artist because she can’t imagine being or doing anything else — it’s BIG FUN!!! A loft studio, affectionately referred to as “The Lair”, is where the oddfae come to life. Greg doesn’t like to go up there because there’s always someone (or something) staring at him.
Her creepy, strange and lunatic creations — treefolk and witches, merfolk and wizards, werewolves, fugitives from fairy tales, Figments of the Imagination, and the slightly-off-center — Odd Fae and Autumn Things, can be found online at www.oddfae.com.
