Josje Veenenbos Posted May 24, 2014 Share Posted May 24, 2014 Hello fellow miniaturists! My name is Josje Veenenbos and I live about 35 miles north of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. My venture into miniatures began in 2003 after a friend asked me to look out for miniatures on my trips abroad. Not long after that I bought a 12th scale Amsterdam Canal House and started building the interiors for it. I enjoy doing research on (social) historical aspects, art and period styles, and I use the information I find to create my miniature interiors. I love experimenting and trying out new (to me) techniques and materials and try to take as many classes as I can. In 2006 I was lucky enough to be able to take a class with Barry Hipwell and he told us about IGMA. A few months later Barry suggested I should apply for a Guild School scholarship, which I did and to my great delight I was invited to come to Castine on a scholarship. I don't have to explain what a fantastic experience the Guild School was! I learned so very much in those five days, and met many wonderful and like minded people. As I continue to learn and grow, this forum will undoubtedly contribute to my development as a miniaturist. I look forward to reading and sharing posts with you.
