Hello and thank you for visiting my Blog! My miniature passion lies in making houseplants, but since most are viewable on my website, this blog will often feature wonderful treasures by other artisans, with a few diversions I hope you will find interesting.

THANK YOU, KIVA!
Before I start posting pics of my work, I must say thank you to Kiva Atkinson, a very special friend who featured me on her blog (http://kivasminiatures.blogspot.com/). She doesn't need an introduction, but if you haven't visited her website you are missing a real treat! Her eclectic taste in miniature foods runs from the basic food groups to Harry Potter mandrakes!
I only wish my human meals would look half as appetizing as her miniature versions! Below are two of my favorites.
Oh, and Kiva, since I accidentally set up this blog while trying to comment on yours, I expect to see you here often!
I have been making miniatures since I was six years old, and after many years of practice found my niche in miniature foliage houseplants. After a ten year hiatus, I discovered via the internet that miniatures had exploded globally in my absence. Feeling s bit intimidated by the talent I saw and the advances in techniques, I had a slow start. Eventually I got back on track and in 2012 was awarded Artisan status by the International Guild of Miniature Artisans.
