Milwaukee Miniature show highlights: Meet the artists and shop owners (part 1)

Miniaturists, Uncategorized

I met so many other talented miniaturists when I was signing books at the Milwaukee Dollhouse and Miniature Show yesterday. Come on a little tour with me. Here in part 1 you’ll meet Suzanne of Suzanne’s Miniatures and Bradley L. Meinke of Purple B Emporium.

Meet Suzanne!

I LOVE her style. She makes lots of fun miniatures that look like something you’d really see in a modern (or 1970s or 1980s) house, like overflowing hampers and tiny mops. She’s is about to open a miniatures shop in St. Louis. If you’re in that area, please pay her a visit and support her new business!

IGMA Artisan Bradley Meinke of Purple B Emporium

Bradley belongs to the International Guild of Miniature Artisans, class of 2017. Per the IGMA website, “The primary goal of The Guild is to promote fine miniatures as an art form, thus removing them from the category of crafts. This goal is achieved in various ways… all of them innovative and exciting! The Guild is a mixture of miniaturists, both collectors and artisans, who have much in common… an appreciation of fine miniatures. We are an organization which unites them both!” Learn more about the IGMA here.

To me, these tiny liquor set ups from Purple B Emporium feel like they belong in an old Savannah, Georgia mansion.
