Althea Posted August 3, 2014 Share Posted August 3, 2014 Howdy folks! I was wondering who was the first miniature artist that really made your jaw drop? Made you say "no way, that CAN NOT BE REAL! Do you remember? The first miniature artist I ever met was Marcia Backstrom. Since I was making clothes, I thought they needed dolls (I don't feel that way any more) and when I saw her work in a book I bought "The Dollhouse Book" by Stephanie Finnegan, I had to write her! I had never been to a dollhouse show or shop and I knew next to nothing about what was good and what was "a fluffy kitten made from a Q-tip." What I did know is I wasn't much of a pretty porcelain face doll kinda gal and I thought Marcia's characters were wonderful and unusual. She and I struck up a lovely relationship that lasted until her untimely passing--she made two custom dolls for me which I treasure and I made many a sweater or accessory for her dolls. So...who got your motor revved or inspired you? ~Althea Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
