Little Ghost Town ~ My Creative Retreat
A passion for history and miniatures led me to this little ghost town which became a haven for my creative side. Rebuilding these stores enabled me to learn a lot about woodworking, renovating and restoration which inspired me to create weathered looking miniature scenes.

About the Artist
Joanne Laura has had a passion for miniatures for 40 years - collecting and creating. A special effects industrial design degree in miniature models, mold making and sculpting plus an interior design background spurred the interest in being a miniature artisan. Making realistic weathered minis to creating miniatures belonging to a fantasy world - and anything in between. Work in a variety of mediums from turning silver, sculpting Fimo, carving wood to draping leather and dressing porcelain figures.
Lifetime member of NAME, support IGMA and have been Regional Coordinator, State Rep and Online Coordinator with NAME receiving awards for my contributions with the miniature community.
