Projects

This section contains my ‘labour of love’ projects, all starring miniature figurines. Well why not? Viewing humanity in miniature proportions helps shift perspectives and makes the mundane magical.

Collection 2018: The Swerling Circus of Small

The Swerling Circus of Small was a glittering collection of miniature circus Glass Cathedrals, exhibited at the Anthropologie Gallery, King's Rd London, Christmas 2018.

2017: This is what humanity looks like

This Glass Cathedral artbox was inspired by first The Women's March 2017, and the people who've been moved to action to protect our rights, our diversity and our planet. I made one protester every day for Trump's first 100 day culminating on the Climate March on 29 April 2017.
The original artwork was raffled, raising over $3000 for Earthjustice. I have made a new box each subsequent year, the signs reflecting the new priorities and evolution of the movement

Collection 2016 – ongoing: The Traveling Bookbox Show

An unusual touring exhibition of book-themed shadowboxes. Many are now being housed at The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in California.
“I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Collection 2016 – ongoing: Tiny Artist Box Worlds

Even in this show-and-tell all age, the world of the Artist remains seductive, magical, and often mysterious. “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” - Pablo Picasso

Project 2015 / One Small Thing

In my One Small Thing project from 2015, I made tiny portraits of people who’re doing something to make a difference, nominated by people who know them.
