Spotlight: Orlando Artist Paints Mini Masterpieces
Just the little things. That’s Orlando artist Sierra Renee’s motto and she lives by it, painting miniature art. She does hand-painted acrylic paintings on a 4-inch by 4-inch paper. The paintings are less than an inch in size.
Her mini masterpieces include landscapes, popular brands, animals and objects. She said the idea came about as she was searching for a niche that would help her sell her artwork.
“I travel a lot and I was over in Germany and I found a little hole-in-the wall artist; he had a small little studio, it was down some back road and all he did was miniatures. Painting for so many years, I always loved doing those tiny little details and I was like, ‘you know what? I can do this,'” said Renee.
She said people often think her works are a sticker, not an actual painting, until they take a closer look.
