Miniature artist, Rachel Growden, has a knack for all things tiny. Making anything from detailed miniature interiors to the miniature dishes served on the table, her creations are true to form and, as such, kinda cute.
“I generally draw inspiration for miniatures from whatever I wish I had in real life but, for whatever reason, don’t,” said the Nashville-based artist in an interview with Daily Mini. “That may be a particular food, a vintage stove, or some antique painting I can’t afford. At least I can have a miniature version.”
But her ultimate obsession has to be miniature food (her miniature lemon bundt cake, in particular, is to die for). “My interest in miniatures really stems from my love of fake food and the realization that minis could be a relatively easy way to reproduce all kinds of food,” explained Growden.
Completely self-taught, Growden says she began experimenting with miniature making after coming across some YouTube videos of a girl making tiny food pieces. “I was working at an art supply store, so I just bought the supplies I needed there and went home to try making some mini food myself,” she recalled.
