Miniatures

All my wildlife art miniatures are painted in acrylic on Polymin, a synthetic base designed to simulate ivory, which was traditionally used for painting miniatures.

A true miniature is not just a small painting, but literally a miniaturised painting, every brush stroke applied with painstaking care (and a very small brush!) to produce a painting that looks as good under magnification as it does to the naked eye.

These miniatures are sold framed in traditional lacquered brass frames, with convex glass and a ‘pocket watch’ style hanging ring. All the paintings below are shown with a British penny for scale. A penny is 20mm or nearly 3/4″ in  diameter; very slightly larger than a US cent.

Prices include UK post & packing.  Please contact me to purchase any artwork on this site, or to enquire about non-UK shipping rates. You can then pay by Paypal, bank transfer or cheque. Commissions are welcome for miniatures or paintings of any wildlife subject. Click images to see a larger version in a new window.
