About

We offer original,miniature paintings and professional, mini art prints, in high gloss aluminum for 1:12 scale, 1:6 scale. Made exclusively for the sophisticated dollhouse collector!

Hi, my name is Diane La Fontaine and I am the owner and artist of all the artwork that is represented in Mini Modern Paintings for my Etsy site and well as my online store, http://minimodernpaintings.com. At Etsy, I am featuring some of my favorite, original, miniature artworks. On my website, I have a much larger selection of mini, original paintings, as well as high gloss, metal prints.  My home is beautiful Maui, Hawaii. Yes, it's a nice place is be constantly inspired!

Before I created Mini Modern Paintings I was content making a living as a professional artist for many years. Creating art is my life and passion. (To see more of my artwork, go to my website http://dianelafontaine.com/home.html )

Then one day, I imagined how my abstract paintings would look so stylish and fresh in a modern dollhouse. That was really a fun insight. I always wanted to see my art that BIG. I saw how I could accomplish that in a mini world! That idea became my inspiration.

I was concerned that maybe there really wasn't a need for this specialty niche. But then, I did a little research and saw all these sophisticated, elegant, designer furnishings influenced by Eames, Jacobson, Pfister, Saarinen. There were many beautiful, mini modern homes available to purchase as well. Still, I wondered, where were all the cool paintings to choose from? There seemed to be a limited selection of good, vibrant artworks.

So I decided I would set out to create the most stylish, high-end, contemporary, original, modern dollhouse paintings store. minimodernpaintings.com
It would  specialize in giving maximum impact to the classic, mid-century or minimalist decor.  would be for the most sophisticated, mini modernist collectors in the world!

I hope you enjoy my seriously cool and contemporary miniature paintings there, as well as my selected artworks on my Etsy store.

How long does it take to ship an ORIGINAL artwork?

The shipping time after processing, is 3-5 days USA and 5-10 days weeks international, depending on your location.

How is the original artwork made? How durable is it?

The artwork is not simply an acrylic painting on a panel. I have a unique mixed media method that I have used in my art for over 20 years. A vinyl plaster base is first applied to a panel. When the plaster base is dried, it can be carved and etched into it, which gives it depth and a slightly sculptural surface. This creates an added richness and a tactile surface unique to the painting. The lines are irregular, the plaster surface is not completely smooth, giving it a more organic, hands on appearance. Acrylic paints and other mediums are then applied on the top surface to complete the painting. A layer of varnish seals and protects the unique piece of art.

How does shipping work if I order more than one item?

It is still Free Shipping if in USA. For international orders, Etsy will add the shipping cost to each item, but we can change that for you by making it a custom order. We will then make the shipping price the same, as for one product. Please contact us to adjust the shipping price before you place the order.

Do you have another place where I can buy your products?

Yes! We recently opened our e commerce online store. We have a large variety of original mini paintings and an exclusive collection of 4" x 5" metal prints. Check us out at http://minimodernpaintings.com Also, I have a personal artist website with my real life paintings! www.dianelafontaine.com

What happens if the product arrives damaged or is lost?

We make a special effort to package your product with utmost care and protection, so it would be a very unlikely occurrence for it to arrive damaged. It is also rare that a package gets lost. Depending on your shipping method, tracking and insurance, the responsibility lies upon you to take it up with the carrier if such a case occurs.

What is a metal print and is it durable?

It's a new medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets. It gives unsurpassed detail on a brilliant high gloss surface. It's modern, timeless and extremely durable!

Hw long does it take to ship a METAL PRINT?

I do carry a limited stock of prints, if I have one in stock that you purchased, it will take only 3-5 days delivery time. I will let you right away, when you order, if I have it in stock.

When it is made to order, it takes 3-5 days to process at the lab. Then it is shipped directly to me so that I can personally sign the back and number the edition of the print. Also, I include the adhesive tabs for hanging. Then it is ready to ship back to you. This process can take 5-10 days. Living in Maui, shipping takes a little longer.
