Dreaming of Dolls, Miniatures, and Fairy Tales

Progress on the Queen of Hearts

I plan to write and illustratate three of my favorite fairy tales in a way children can better enjoy them.  So here are the three tales (drum roll please): Anderson’s Thumbelina, The Little Mermaid, and, Alice in Wonderland.

The illustrations for these stories will be quite an undertaking because I will be sculpting each character in polymer clay.  In addition to that work I will be creating miniatures to go along with the stories, so something like Mad Hatter’s tea party will be entirely in handmade miniatures.  And I will be creating the backgrounds using encaustic painting techniques.  Basically that just means I will be painting the backgrounds in beeswax and pigment.

I will be chronicling my process here.  If you’d like to know when the fairy tales are published be sure to sign up for my newsletter.
