Louise Krasniewicz is an anthropologist and artist. In addition to creating miniatures she is studying ancient miniatures across times and cultures, miniatures in the movies, and miniatures at the World’s Fairs. Her first entry in the 2010 Flower Show miniature settings class won a Third Place ribbon despite the fact that she always felt she had no clue what she was doing. In 2011 she won a Second Place for her miniature Hawaiian Museum with its Charlie Chan murder scene. In 2013 she achieved a First Place ribbon and a Best of Show for miniature settings for the Herbology Greenhouse at Hogwarts. A Second Place in 2014 for Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds and a First Place and Best of Show in 2015 for Rear Window marked the end of her exhibits at the Flower Show. The production of all these works, and their exhibit in Singapore in 2014, are documented here. She has since been banned from future Philadelphia Flower Shows.
