My “Life In Miniature” series is about daily observations, working on a smaller scale with limited color and using recycled material. It was my natural curiosity to utilize the everyday materials I had on hand; these include chipboard, packaging cardboard and watercolor paper.
My small works of art, 15 in total are currently showcased at Off The Wall Gallery @ Dirty Frank’s in Philadelphia alongside 5 very talented artists. The Mid Summer Invitational (A Passion For Painting!) Opening Night is Thursday, August 18th the show will run until October 7, 2022.
The art was inspired by my surroundings, my neighborhood, road trips, and walks in the Wissahickon Park. The smallest painting in my collection measures 1×2 inches.
There is something about creating art with recycled materials—and elevating it to something special that just makes me happy.
Thank you for visiting and taking the time to view my art!

Jennifer, very cool behind-the-scenes shots of the art coming together. Congrats on the showcase at Off The Wall and welcome back to WP! Best, Bruce
Hi Bruce thank you for the greeting! It is great to be back and to see what Ive missed and to catch up with everyone. I hope you are doing well and enjoying your Summer.. Have a good one! Jen
Wow, I love this whole idea and you really made some great work here.
Hello Claudia! I appreciate your feedback, thank you!
I love this! I only dabble in art, so it’s great to see a true artist at work. And I’m a huge fan of anything “mini.” I once commissioned an artist to do a shadowbox mini for a friend. It came out so great, I commissioned another for another friend overseas.
Thank you Maryanne. The mini art commissions for your friends sound interesting and fun. Im sure they loved it! What kind of paints/material do you like to work with?
