This artist, Sue Ann Thwaite, aka Lady Bug, is a casual acquaintance of mine. I have seen her at many shows and dined with her last January at a Florida show. She is incredibly talented...able to make these tiny 1/4" scale fairies and accessories. She uses natural sticks and nuts casings and seeds and anything else she comes across.....pinecones and mosses and whatnot.
These are two custon fairy houses she did. I think they are amazing and great inspiration. Her website has many more wonderful things to admire.....and buy if you are of a mind. Or use for your own inspiration!
Tabitha Corsica, aka the Ice Queen...my alter ego. The sublime miniaturist...not the one who cooks, cleans, does laundry and runs the taxi service. I have a husband and a teenage son and 2 lively Havanese dogs (need I say more?). All of which has a strange way of taking over much of my time. But making, collecting and just plain looking at miniatures is what I do best and what I crave to do the most....outside of reading a really good book.
