Key West Art by Alisa Mealor
The idea behind starting to create these original miniatures was that anyone could afford a piece of original art. They come with a small easel but can be hung, grouped, or framed. I have started receiving photos of my miniatures from around the world. Germany, China, and Bermuda are a few places where my originals have ended up, pretty cool. These miniature art paintings have been a favorite with collectors. Affordable, original art.
