Announcement   Hallooo! Thanks for having a peek at my miniatures. Each piece is made individually over the course of a week or so. They are most often daydreamy escapes and cheeky adventures.
I paint with oil enamel directly onto the metal - no paper prints glued in place. They are super individual, with tiny brushstrokes.
Here is an excellent video that my penpal made about the process!: http://vimeo.com/109888849
And a vunderful Etsy feature:
https://blog.etsy.com/en/2015/featured-shop-khara-ledonne/

Custom orders take 1-2 weeks, and are 10-30% more than shop prices, depending on complexity. Custom orders are on hiatus until the end of the summer while I focus on a new mural and some other painting projects.

Also we are adjusting to life on a sailboat this summer. It is madness!

Thank you so much for the incredible stories and support.
Love,

My first little lighthouse inspired by our inaugural sail. In spite of the bleariness of seasickness, you betcha I still got a good look at those wonderful structures.

Daydreams in a Nutshell

These things are important!
These daydreams.
So many voices tell us to straighten up, work hard, cut the fat and focus. Maybe it's true, but I stand for the little voice that tells you to take a nap, stare at the clouds and think about your favorite things.
I get to make mini escapes. The place you want to go instead of where you are. The capsule of fresh air that can be worn around your neck and taken wherever you go, or even given to someone who needs it more than you. Nostalgic landscapes, spirit animals, inside jokes: this is the good stuff that reminds you why you are you, and nobody else.

See my process and how it all works in this sweet little video: http://vimeo.com/109888849
(copy + paste in a new window and it'll pop right up)

For fifteen years I've been mucking about with paint, usually on great big walls and windows. Miniatures crept in so sneakily, an experimentation at most. My eyes were terrible; hands were shaky. Over time it came more naturally, and my eyes even got better; no kidding! Now it looks like Santa's workshop around here, with me curled over my little elf table, holding my breath for the perfect brushstroke. Everything is tiny and beautiful, and everyday I am amazed that I get to create so many miniature masterpieces to sustain myself and others.
