Meet our Members - Courtney Strong

Hello, I am Courtney Strong, a food artisan specializing in smaller scales.  
Miniatures have been a part of my life since I was four years old, when my grandmother built me my first dollhouse.  Over many years we had a wonderful time together furnishing and accessorizing.  My passion returned as an adult and as I was putting together a new house with my childhood items, it occurred to me that I could make my own cakes.  I decorated cakes professionally for almost ten years, which provided me then and now, with  much inspiration.  Creating my cakes, I soon discovered the online world of miniatures, which has brought a great amount of joy to my life every day. 

I didn't think it could get much better... then I decided to try going smaller than the average miniature.  I ventured into the smaller scales, where I have really stayed.  My favourite scale to work in is 1:48.  I enjoy the challenge of achieving as much realism as possible into my micro creations, be it cakes, desserts or savoury items.  I do work in all scales 1:12, 1:24, 1:48 and 1:144.
Recently, I received the great news that a tutorial of mine has been published in the July 2010 issue of Dollshouse World Magazine.
