HeidiGibsonDesigns' Shop Announcement

Thanks for visiting! I am an artist who creates custom heirlooms. These pieces are personal, unique, and will be treasured for generations. I design each item to the tiniest detail, crafting my personal style into each piece. The portrait miniatures have a rich history, preceding photography by centuries as tokens of love and affection, pledges of political allegiance, and exchanges of gifts among aristocracy. They were especially valuable in introducing people to each other over distances; a nobleman proposing the marriage of his daughter might send a courier with her portrait to visit potential suitors. Soldiers and sailors might carry miniatures of their loved ones while traveling, or a wife might keep one of her husband while he was away. I am proud to play a small part in continuing a long history of portrait miniatures.
