My love of miniatures goes way back to my childhood when I used to spend hours and hours with my Grandfather who was a model train enthusiast. Affectionately nick-named "Mister Christmas," I have combined my passion for miniatures with my passion for holidays, the outdoors, and all things repurposed. I enjoy finding new ways to repurpose discarded antique vessels and giving them new life by building miniature vignettes using vintage clocks, cameras, radios, volt meters, airplane pieces, antique children's toys, and various other vintage and antique vessels. Each scene is a one-of-a-kind view of every-day life, whether it is a snapshot of nature, or a glimpse of a bustling city. I always include tiny pieces of magic, like trees, flowers, buildings, flashing signs, streetlights, automobiles, and animals. Most pieces are lit using small LED lights and most pieces include moving parts and other interesting ideas that make each viewer feel like a kid in a candy store. Each work by “Mister Christmas” is made in my studio space at the BAMS Art Studio in Englewood, CO.
