Beth Freeman was born to South African parents in Australia in 1966. The family returned home to South Africa in 1970, where she has lived sever since. Miniaturism
emerged in Beth's creative endeavors from the tender age of six, together with a fascination for all living things. Her talent and passion for "creating in little" came quite naturally, rather
than being a conscious decision. Throughout her formal education, this was generally considered a flaw by her teachers and tutors, and concerted efforts were made to correct this tendency! The
idea that art should be large to have any substance or validity was a constant theme. In the end, her stubbornness and inner drive kept her focused on what she knew she was best at. Her art
evolved over many years to take on the unique form we know today. She is now a professional artist with an extensive following of collectors.
Michael Yurkovic brings his variety of experience as an Industrial Designer, Toy Inventor, Technical Illustrator, and Machinist to each piece he creates in miniature. His works have been featured at The Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the KSB Miniature Collection in Maysville Kentucky. Michael regularly teaches workshops around the United States, and will expand his schedule in 2020 to include the Netherlands, London, and Denmark. His latest works are inspired by stories, or narratives, which guide the creation of a new piece, often developing organically with the project.
