A chance visit to a dollhouse shop in the Cotswolds many years ago turned out to be a collision with destiny for me. I was instantly and completely besotted with the tiny world I saw. I began creating 1/12th scale potted plants and flowers with increasingly precise detail and became known for the miniscule buds and teensy branches I delighted in adding to my pieces.
I am an IGMA (International Guild of Miniature Artisans) Fellow in the Plants category, creating 1/12th and 1/24th scale flowering and foliage plants in standard dollhouse scales. Fellow level of membership in IGMA is the highest level of juried recognition in the world of miniatures. Every leaf in my creations is freehand cut, veined and painted.
My miniatures reside in museums and private collections around the world, and my work has been featured several times in Miniature Collector magazine...
