Vernacular Miniatures was founded in 1992, primarily making models of vernacular architecture for timber framed building restoration. My background in fine art, classical architecture, and modelmaking quickly led to a much wider range of requests, for all types of modelmaking from rapid prototype sketches, to fully rendered reconstructions of long lost sites and artefacts.
My work combines elements of the traditional Modelmakers art, with the latest in interactive techniques and technologies.
Over the last 28 years there have been a very diverse range of projects, from replica artefacts for handling collections, film props, interactive donation boxes, countless architectural and topographical models.
I also undertake restoration work on older and historic models, from simple patina sympathetic repairs to full rebuilds.
Previous clients include museums, public and private collections worldwide.
