White Boy

The miniatures from the project WHITE BOY, are inspired by my 90,000 word novel which is set in Ireland, and tells the story of two teenagers, one living in 1803 and one in 1977. With their lives intertwined with each other’s but also with the raging political conflict of the 1970’s they try to make sense of what is happening around them. Even though Florian Brackfar and Ellis Sabel could never have met, they have come to know each other’s thoughts and feelings intimately.

The Sea Cow with its Young

I was commissioned to make this miniature for a retiring sailing instructor. His boat is a traditional Dutch flat-bottomed sailing boat and in my miniature I have depicted it towing the pupil’s small sailing boats after a long day’s sailing trip.
