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 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.

Ice cream parlour dollhouse art paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on February 3rd, 2020

The Ice Cream Parlour Collection

Following on from my January post called the Wedding Store I thought it would be fun to make a back drop for my Ice Cream Parlour themed paintings. These delicious delights, the paintings I mean ! have been extremely well received, the paintings, signs, together with the bill boards. I was amazed how last year so many of these went into miniature dollhouse properties, seems ice cream parlour in miniature are very popular.

This is a little film I did today to look at the new and recent paintings……

The Ice Cream Parlour …..Well paintings of ice cream, maybe I should call it the ice cream art gallery.

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.
