For more than 40 years it has been my passion to replicate beautiful pieces of pottery and porcelain in miniature scales for discriminating collectors. I enjoy studying museum collections and antiques references to gather information as well as inspiration to create my fantasy collections. Each piece is a replica of a specific example of antique pottery or porcelain in 1/12, 1/6, or 1/4 scale .
Due to having the good fortune to travel in Italy, visit museums there, and study egg tempera painting along with my husband’s “Workshops in Italy”, I have added miniature tempera painting to my repertoire reproducing works of “The Old Masters” on tiny wooden panels.
My works are produced very slowly and in extremely limited editions ( some are one or two of a kind ) Since my work covers a broad range of periods and styles I tend to get behind in production and pieces must be made to order.
Please contact me first to confirm availability of pieces you are interested in purchasing. I am happy to hear of your interests. Also check "News" on this site for listing of any shows where my work can be seen.
