About

Petite Afrique: Unique, modern, and vibrant 1:12 scale miniatures

Petite Afrique
French, n. - def. Little Africa
(peh-TEET ae-f-R-EE-K)

The name “Petite Afrique” is a nod to Sylvia’s commitment to increasing the visibility and representation of Black and Brown miniaturists. Through Petite Afrique, Sylvia creates highly detailed and realistic 1:12 scale objets d'art that embody culture, vibrancy, modernity, and uniqueness. The work encompasses an ever-growing variety of categories, including shoes, books, plants, home goods, ceramics, and needlework. Many of the pieces are influenced by artwork, iconography, patterns, and imagery related to Africa and the African Diaspora. Petite Afrique offers a fresh point of view that contributes to expanding diversity within the wonderful world of miniatures.
