Hello, and thank you for stopping by! Nice to meet you!  

My name is Suzan Rene Turner 

and  I Have been a Miniatureist almost all my life. 
As a former Hollywood Movie and TV Set Designer,Prop Maker, 
Commercial Property Designer and Graphic Artist/Illustrator, 
I  am so Blessed to merge my love of miniatures with my professional  skills.  
They say that if you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. 
Couldn't agree more!
The Artisan Cottage is a darling little Artists Studio
 located at the Top of  Lookout Mountain 
just West of Denver.
It's nestled in a group of giant pine trees that
when viewed from above
 is shaped like a perfect heart.  
The Cottage studio is now dedicated to Miniature
  Commissioned projects.
 We will resume miniature collection tours as soon as we unpack in our new location!

From, wiring/lighting a Dollhouse or miniature scene, to making a miniature replica of about anything imaginable!

I also make custom 3D printed things and scenes.
Examples of some 3D printed projects. 
The printing process produces a basic three dimensional shape. It is then assembled refined and painted(etc). to be finished as pictured.
