Dolls House Miniature Art Commissions :: Posted by: Hazel on December 1st, 2020

Art Commissions

Miniature Art For Your Dollhouse

These are some of my recent commissioned miniature dolls house art paintings.

Commission art generally can be a challenge,  and over the past couple of months these challenges put to me by some of my collectors has been great fun and has really stretched me.

So ……. this blog post shows some of my recent commission pieces. All painted in my Encaustic wax paint of course.

Here we have a very diverse mix of themes and subjects. Which are going into dollhouses and miniature properties both here in England and around the world. These pieces are in fact going to several collectors on three different continents. How cool is that !!!!!

As you can see below …..

We have a collection of three dolly paintings.

These are in the style of vintage boudoir dolls and framed in antique style frames. This is my most recent commission project, a lovely collector whom has many of my miniature paintings, asked me to paint these beautiful dolls for her miniature dollhouse. I painted the backgrounds in gold and bronze wax paint to give a vintage feel and the frames adds to the overall classic look.

These Dolly’s which all have names by the way,  was one of my most fun and challenging of projects To date. They are Dolly Sophia in pink, Dolly Bluebell in Blue and cutie Dolly Claire in yellow.

The Gentlemans Department

The top hat and other paintings shown in my 1:12th scale Art Gallery above were painted for a collector in Wales for her haberdashery store which has a Gentleman’s department on the first floor.

The French Connection !

Then we have a set of four paintings commissioned of the french city Saint-Malo in Brittany, the lady sent me photographs and I painted my impressions of the beautiful port city.

Iconic USA

The paintings of the New York sky lines below show one including the State of Liberty were commissions by a lady in England to go into her Hotel (Dolls House size) in her themed suite.

Michelle has many of my paintings in her hotel with had rooms in various themes. And it a very substantial miniature property.

The paintings of the Washington Monument and the Martin Luthier King Junior memorial which are very tiny indeed, are now in a dollhouse state side.

Beautiful Lady 

This beautiful African Lady painting has also gone to America which was commissioned by a collector of African style art, both large and in miniature.

This is one of my favourite paintings….. I have lots of favourites ….. but with this piece, the paint flowed and she came to life, I just loved painting her

My Miniature Art on display in Connecticut :: Posted by: Hazel on October 19th, 2020

Welcome to Connecticut Bauernhof Manor House

Miniature Art in its new home in Connecticut
Today I’m very honoured to be able to share with you one of my new collectors dollhouse. Miranda started collecting my art earlier this year after seeing my posts on Instagram.

The name of her house is “Connecticut Bauernhof Manor House” and is shown here in the photographs with my art in its new home. The photographs are taken by the collector and copyright is respected.

Miranda tells me she bought this her, first dollhouse last October, it has 7 rooms, and she is already planning the next larger house …..The houses came from her local dollhouse shop: Whimsies Dollhouse Shop in Greenwich, Connecticut

The residents (dolls) of this amazing miniature property are ;
Arthur (Art) and Ava both age 41, Elsa age 6 and Ella just 18 months old
Gerda is the maid, and Elisa (Ava’s younger sister, she’s 37 years old)
Ava’s and Elisa’s parents Einar and Elise also reside in this wonderful house.

The back story is that they are from Austria and their last name is Bauernhof, all Except Gerda who is from Denmark. And they have a dog named is Laddie.

Miniature Art in Situ

Arts Study has my boat painting over the stairs and an Autumnal landscape painting above his desk.


In Elisa’s beautiful bedroom hangs “The Lady in The Garden” painting, a real statement piece at 3 1/2 by 2 1/2 inches.

The Cottage at “Cherry Tree Lane” has roses around the door and wisteria growing up the front apex, this Dollhouse size miniature painting is just 2 x 2 1/4 inches And fits perfectly into the decor of this dressing room, as does The Street Shopping scene.

The Ballerina takes her curtain call ….. this pretty painting is just great in this setting, how lovely is the furniture in this room, I just love the toys and the tutu is so cute, which was made by Miranda who also makes wonderful miniature wedding dresses.

Thank you Miranda for sharing your dollhouse with us, I’m very honoured to have my paintings in such a lovely setting.
