Welcome to my blog!  I'm Kristine Hanna, a Canadian miniaturist and dollhouse creator.  Paper Doll Miniatures is a blog to document my miniatures and connect with other mini makers.  I've been making minis since 2009 and blogging about them since 2013.

I create one of a kind roomboxes and dollhouses and stage life like scenes.  My style is mostly Transitional, with a blend of modern and traditional styles.  For a long time it was hard to find many modern minis.  Shortly after starting my blog I leaned into new tech.  I taught myself how to laser cut and 3d print so that I could offer my own miniature hardware, fixtures, and lights for my projects and sale in my shop.

My miniature journey started while completing my BFA at the University of Ottawa.  I focused on photography and used miniatures extensively through my work.  My blog title 'Paper Doll' refers to the paper doll-like cut out of myself that I would use in my miniature scenes.

For the last 8 years, I have turned my attention to the handcrafting of miniatures for the collector.  I particularly like large luxury dollhouses with lots of space and modern interiors and furnishings.  I also use new technology like laser cutting and 3D printing in my work.  My blog allows me to show my progress and share my techniques with other miniaturists.  Please check out the gallery page to see my work.

Miniatures for me create a stage to layer illusion and whimsical narratives. It feels familiar and yet uncanny.
