Welcome to my site, thanks for checking things out!
I go by Sparrow.
I’m a freelance miniatures painter from Washington State, USA.
I began painting in August of 2013 as a means to grieve my father’s death. I never thought that it would turn into the passion that has grown into what it is today. I’ve worked hard for almost the last 4 years to get to the level I am at today. I’m self taught and I’m still learning a lot everyday and hope to one day be able to help teach others. I greatly use the resources from other great miniatures painters out there.
I spend a lot of time over on the Reaper Miniatures forum. You can find me there under the name SparrowMarie. It’s where I post my work in progress threads so you can follow along during my painting process. I plan to start bringing that aspect over here to my blog as well. I may in the future also start writing up tutorials for how I do certain things.
You may have noticed on the side bar that I have pictures from my Instagram feed. These are the latest things that I post and will show up before I blog about them. So head on over there and give me a follow to get sneak peeks at what I’m working on. I’m also working up on building a Twitter account for short updates that don’t warrant a blog and of course my Facebook artist page is great to check out too.
I’ll update my blog with photos and progress as often as possible. For more photos of my past works check out my portfolio. I only have 2 projects in the portfolio as of now but it should grow quickly as I am painting full time currently. Because I’m painting full time I am currently taking commissions.
