A life in miniature making

My mother asked, after a lovely Christmas dinner: 'Shall I throw this box away, of does anyone have use for it?'
She was referring to a wooden box that had contained the bottle of wine we had just mastered.

'Why don't I start doing something creative as a new year's resolution and make a nice shadow box out of it?' I thought.

That's the very start of my miniature making. The box turned out nice and I made another one. And then another one! Then my brother became a father for the first time and I made my first nephew a little bakery with music and lights. Everyone was thrilled with the result and told me to make more boxes like that.

Now, some four years later, I have made many boxes and miniatures. I experienced with all sorts of materials and styles. And I LOVE the magical style the most: witches, wizards, castles and basements filled with old books, chests, potions and wands. I make these and much more in miniature and put all my passion and perfectionism in it.

Welcome to my shop! If you have anything you want to discuss, buyers or sellers, feel free to contact me.

    Hi! My name is Marike and I live in the city of Nijmegen, claimed to be the oldest city in the Netherlands. Making miniatures in a Medieval kind of magical theme, particularly books and candles is what I love!
