My love for miniatures started at a young age. I began making miniature scenes in bird nest baskets in the 70’s. I enjoyed being spontaneous, combining natural materials with my love of birds and miniatures.  

Today I have a lot of fun creating miniature scenes with materials I have on hand using a variety of containers, such as tea cups and cigar boxes.  My artwork continues to be inspired by nature, the seasons and the holidays.  Many of my miniature scenes display those celebrations that I like to share.

I am pleased to be a member of the art community here at Ocean Blue Vault in Half Moon Bay for the Spring 2023 Collection.  Being able to share my miniature scenes with you means a lot to me.

I look forward to meeting you, and if you have a “container” you like, I might be inspired to make a miniature scene just for you!
