Linda Cummings, IGMA Fellow

Intricately Detailed & Realistic

Linda Cummings is an artist in the United Kingdom obsessed with perfection and realism in her one inch scale miniature collectible foods. She became absorbed in the world of scale miniatures 10 years ago but was always a “crafty” person.  Watercolors, counted cross stitch, knitting and crochet were a few of the crafts she enjoyed, no doubt preparing her for the creation of detailed miniatures!

Each of “Lin’s Minis” is carefully handmade, highly realistic and unique – no two are ever the same!  In November of 2009,  Linda was honored to become a Fellow member of the International Guild of Miniature Artisans (IGMA).  She prepares online tutorials for Custom Dolls, Houses & Miniatures (CDHM), is a member of the MiniMakers Etsy Street Team, and her work has also been featured in most of the well known miniature magazines.

“The most satisfying aspect of my work is to see a customer’s idea become a reality in miniature!”
