About

How I began painting miniatures

I began painting in a small scale in the early 1990‘s, when my love for Renaissance art and miniatures merged into hand painted jewelry. In order to adapt paintings into a wearable form, I taught myself to paint in miniature. I also began making small gilded and painted objects- triptychs, boxes and frames.

Details in Renaissance paintings, illuminated manuscripts and decorative art inspire me. Although I now paint mostly in acrylics, I study traditional painting techniques and materials. I use traditional gilding techniques in much of my work.

I am drawn to the minute and frequently overlooked elements in the natural world and often place them as the focal point in my paintings and jewelry. Where one would traditionally see a portrait or a gemstone, I paint a tree, insect, animal or bird. I try to capture the luminosity of Renaissance paintings, while paying homage to the natural world.

The resin jewelry pieces are gilded with 22k gold leaf, then hand painted in acrylics using a variety of small brushes and a magnifier. Aside from the casting of the resin, I do every process myself.
