the journey of a budding author


1976. My first doll house, made from a grocery box and the figures made from clothes pins and the furniture made from found objects and cardboard.


country kitchen made from a wooden wine box, my collection of miniatures has grown over the years. I find tiny objects irresistible!


The study of an early 20th century explorer. Each tiny diorama tells a story as I have let my imagination go .


Christmas Eve afternoon tea. I love the tiny tea-set!


The scale of all of these room boxes is 1″ in 12″ some of the contents are charms from Christmas crackers, ┬ásome are from junk shops. For the trophy heads I bought a packet of plastic animals, cut off the heads and stuck them to wooden discs. Such fun! I don’t think I have really grown up!
