Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

American Miniaturist Magazine Features Hazel Rayfield :: Posted by: Hazel on January 16th, 2020

The American Miniaturist

The American Miniaturist Magazine is a global magazine featuring miniaturists and Dollhouse collectors from all over the world.

In the February 2020 issue I am delighted to say my miniature art gets a three page feature.

I was contacted last year via instagram by a feature writer for the magazine and invited to be interviewed and have an article written. The editor Auralea also got in touch and the feature was planned.

It is lovely to see my art in print, this is the first feature in a US magazine, having been featured in UK publications in the past and I’m very honoured to have been included in the American Miniaturist.

The article touches on how I first started painting for dolls’ houses which is a nice story so I thought I’d expand on that a little …..

It all began in 2013, I had been painting in encaustic for about two years then and selling small and larger art, when my husband who is a decorator (a very practical and varied talented man ) was working for a client who asked him if he would be able to help her build the basement for her Georgian Dolls House.

He took on the challenge.

And whilst he was working on her dolls’ house she asked him if I would paint her some pictures for her house. She wanted her miniature house to have original art, she already owned a larger piece of my work. She bought some tiny frames and I painted varies subjects to fit them, she asked for the paintings to be colour co-ordinated to fit in with certain decor in the rooms but otherwise I was left to my own imagination.

Following her taking receipt of the paintings I blogged about it and more requests and commissions came for dollhouse paintings. I starting selling tiny miniatures in my shops and as they say the rest is history…….. As far as I am aware pieces of my Art In Wax are currently in 18 countries spanned over 4 continents.
