Miniatures by Rebecca Smith of Smiths Little Things

I was always the “art student” throughout my schooling years. I went on to study visual arts at university and following that, I became a secondary school art and media teacher. At this point, time for my own passions was in short supply and my own art practice was put on hold for a while. However, on my recent maternity leave, I was able to experiment with my art practice further. This led to the concept of ballpoint pen miniatures — drawings I could create whilst the baby was asleep. Now, back at work, I have continued this practice.
