Tiny Landscapes and Creatures Inside Wooden Boxes by Allison May Kiphuth

Allison May Kiphuth is a diorama artist and a nature enthusiast based in New Hampshire sea coast. She builds these amazing mixed media landscapes populated with miniature creatures inside wooden boxes that are merely a few inches wide. The owls, foxes, rabbits, whales, hawks, coral, stars, and moon smaller than dimes create magical experience for the viewer. She makes use of fine wire, string and pins to assemble the watercolor and ink layered illustrations of a Lilliputian scale in antique boxes. 

Her exquisite work can be viewed in person at an exhibition titled “What Goes Around” at Nahcotta Gallery in New Hampshire that started on April 1 and goes on till May 1. To find more information about the show and timings go here. You can see more of her work on Instagram.
