Jane Harrop started making miniatures as a hobby nine years ago, when she made and demonstrated the projects at her local miniatures group - her enthusiasm turned this hobby into her job. She has been teaching adult education classes for the past five years, and has had articles published in Dolls' House World magazine. Jane sells her work through local miniatures fairs to both collectors and the trade, and is presenting workshops at the 2002 British Miniature weekend fair. This is Jane's first book. Jane is married with two children, and lives in Poynton, Cheshire.
