“I enjoy being able to slow down and focus intently on tiny details, literally holding my breath to place just a fraction of a pen dot-sized highlight in the eye of my subject.” M. Jan Schroeder.
Schroeder paints miniatures, mostly of wildlife including birds, wolves and more. She also works in still life and landscapes and is even experimenting now with portraiture. Her miniatures have a history that dates back to the 16th century. Small enough to carry with you, royalty often used them as a means of identification and in Victorian times as a way of carrying pictures of loved ones.
