Well, I've tried.
Several times actually.
And while I am currently pulling out hair trying to get my custom dollhouse structure built (4th time re-cutting the walls, now in MDF, which is a winner), tracking down materials, and slicing hundreds of little planks of veneer to complete the floor (so many!)...
I thought I might share with you some of my previous miniature work from before I started this blog. I know I've linked to these images before but I thought it would be nice to have a post about it right on the site.
Through the years I have tried different ways of inserting myself inside the miniature space by video, physically (above), or most often by including a paper cut out of myself (below), which I referred to as the paper doll. That was the inspiration for my blog name when I started.
Below are some images from different series I have done. They are printed large scale, some as big as 30 x 20 inches. If you want you can see more images here.
Enter my favourite series yet, the one that I feel best represents my choice of narrative and style. Bright and colourful with a whimsical narrative that balances the uncanny and the everyday.
Now I do have some good news. While I have been away for (glup!) months mostly redo-ing things you've seen already like walls and windows, the flooring is half done! So I will be posting about that next... and try not to disappear again ;)
