About

Welcome to my Miniature World

Ever since I was a child, I’ve loved wildlife and nature. Making dens in the woods, keeping snails and breeding moths. I used to make pretend archaeological digs, finding bones and shells. I loved visiting museums and I spent hours watching my father doing taxidermy.
When I was older I went to the London College of Furniture and gained a diploma in furniture studies. Dolls houses and miniatures have been a keen interest of mine for over 25 years. I’ve made a wide variety of 12th scale items for my own dolls house over the years including –
Wooden furniture such as tables and chairs, a davenport, an oak chest, kitchen furniture and more. I’ve turned goblets and plates, made fimo plants, vegetables, fish, and made paper butterflies and moths.
My latest venture involves 3d printing –
A typical animal head is first 3d printed by my husband, then prepared for finishing by myself. It is filed and sanded before being painted, using various layers of Acrylic paint colour to build up a lifelike finish. Then enhanced where necessary with alpaca fibre from our own alpacas, and horse hair from my daughters pony.
