Dustin White is inspired by historical spaces and he wants to represent it in the purest way possible in his scaled work. While his favorite is mid-18th century American domestic architecture, he has been known to work in Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, and Victorian, but he never makes the same piece twice!
Miniature making is a combination of White’s three favorite things: art, architecture, and history. In 2015, he completed a one-room brick schoolhouse with over 5,000 bricks that he hand cut from reclaimed material. He considers each piece a success when you have to take a second look at a photograph of it to realize it’s a miniature.
Dustin White is one of over sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.
