Hello, I'm Katie Doka
’The devil is always in the details’
Originally I am a visual arts teacher. One of my students had once showed me her own work in miniatures and I liked them so much that I decided to try it out myself. (Is not it just great that teachers can sometimes learn something from their students?) Since then miniature making has become a passion for me. It requires a tremendous amount of self discipline. You need to stay focused and pay attention to every little detail. In other words, the devil, as we know it, is always in the details.
To make a piece requires a lot of time and a great variety of materials. Usually, the alternate 2 hours working and 1 hour resting routine have served me well in my working method.
All my work is handmade and attention to detail is my top priority.
I don't use any molds to create my miniatures, so each creation is One of a Kind! It's unique and has its own charasteristic
