This week's installment is a memorial tribute to a wonderful artisan who passed away before a good percentage of the miniature world ever discovered her. I knew her simply as Kay, a good-hearted woman with talent to match. These pieces have been in my collection since 2000 and I've been trying to design homes for them that will showcase their lovely detail. Her signature is simply, "Jud."
This collection doesn't even begin to do her range of styles justice. She painted whole rooms of furniture in different styles including country primitive snowmen, Christmas holly, pastoral settings complete with tiny flocks of sheep... They were all amazing. And so was Kay.
