About

From the Studio of New Orleans's Miniaturist...

One Christmas I decided to make a box of personalized miniature accessories for my Grandma's dollhouse. I "miniaturized" her wedding dress, family portraits, and a couple of the family's handmade quilts. I enjoyed the process so much that in 2009 I began listing similar items on Etsy.

As I studied production design at NYU Tisch, my Etsy shop became a means of supporting myself. For a poor graduate student, selling miniatures made sense because they could be created inexpensively. As I worked on school projects, my business was born of the not-so-miniature pile of scrap materials growing in a corner of my room.

More importantly though, selling miniatures became an exercise in photography and scenic composition. Both theatrical design and miniature artistry employ illusion in their craft. I've always loved that fact, and the greatest fun for me remains sculpting cast-off materials into objects of wonder.

The charm of a dollhouse lies in its attention to detail: the unexpected surprise of a pair of slippers by a bed, a bundle of love letters peeking out of a drawer, the birds' nest tucked away high in the gables. If you enjoy displaying these as much as I have enjoyed creating them, then my store has been a success!
