Jan Patrie started making miniature food after seeing the limited selection and poor quality of commercially available options. Patrie chose to focus on miniature food because she loves to cook and inspiration is never far away: the kitchen, cookbooks, farmer’s market, or grocery store. Working in polymer clay, she aims to make every piece look good enough to eat.

Patrie is one of more than sixty artists participating in Miniature Masterworks, September 15-17, 2017.
