Bricks & Bones

Personalised Miniatures created by hand

i started making miniature buildings as a natural progression from my recent line drawings. Ive always been interested in model making, and thought i would give it a go!

Whether you're moving from a family home, building a new one or just love your favourite pub....let me recreate it for you in miniature.

Modern Architecture

How it Works

When I've decided on a particular building, i take photos of it from every angle, to get the dimensions correct and the roof pitch just right. Then i take more photos of the smaller details that make the building unique.

The more detail, the better right?

The basic model is made from recycled cardboard with polystyrene inside to hold it rigid, the windows and doors are added and then the fun bit!

All the tiny details, roof tiles, stonework etc is added before painting.

Previously working on large scale paintings, this is a challenge for me, although its an enjoyable one. Once the colour is added, the building really comes to life.

Its then varnished and put on a plinth ready to go to its new (larger) home.
