I am a retired nurse in Houston, Texas. I've always been interested in a variety of crafts, and making miniatures is a way I can combine all of my favorite methods of creativity into one arena. I love to use everyday objects to make miniatures. There is something cathartic about digging through a shoe box of bits and pieces of broken electronics to find the perfect piece to use in miniature art. I also examine packaging, and other items usually slated for trash. It's a huge compliment when someone looks at photos of a room box and says they can't tell if it is a full sized room or a miniature.
