I create miniature sets and photoshop myself into them… but that’s only part of the story.
Hi I’m Bronte (Bee) and with my camera, I create my own little worlds, each with a story to tell. I’m a self-portrait artist, miniature maker and content creator who believes that creative expression leads to freedom. Some call me a Modern Day Thumbelina and I love that.
I am currently making the miniature rooms for a haunted ethereal mansion. This mansion has a story to tell and will form the backdrop for a book. Each room has hidden clues and messages to the story and those that once occupied this home. Flowers play a significant part in this house manifesting where there are strong emotions, I was inspired by the quote ‘Love Grows Here‘. So far I have completed the conservatory, the music room, the living room, the dining room and I am currently creating the library. I can’t wait to share more of this story with you
My hope is that what I do will inspires others to be more creative, expressive and experimental in all areas of their lives. I think that when we fully express ourselves we are freer, more mentally healthy, love ourselves more and finally dance to the beat of our own drum.
I started creating while I was still at university and it’s been my full-time career since leaving. I’ve created for Photoshop, Disney, Logitech, Sky TV, and Marriott Hotels to name just a few. No two days are the same and I feel very privileged and fortunate to do what I do.
I strive to live a sustainable lifestyle, and I live in a rural village in Northamptonshire with my partner and two rescue cats who feature a lot on my instagram.
“When we allow creativity to lead our lives we are free of others’ expectations, societal norms, mass consumerisation and the limits previously set for us“
BEE GOOD. DO GOOD.
Bronte believes in conscious collaboration, and influencer accountability and responsibility.
“I will not knowingly ever promote single-use plastic items. I’m passionate about the environment and the damage that single-use plastic is causing and I will not promote it. Sometimes, without my knowing, items are packaged or arrive in single-use plastic, I try my best to avoid this and discourage it.”
“I will never promote something knowingly tested on animals. This for me is just a given. I always do my research and check online as much as I can but I’m not perfect and may miss something.”
“I will promote sustainable fashion wherever possible. I am a proud outfit repeater and try my very best to purchase items that come from small ethical retailers. I do succumb to the occasional fast fashion item, I’m human, but wherever possible I will promote garments that are not designed to be disposable.”
“I will never promote anything that is designed to play on people’s fears. Nor things that make people feel bad about themselves, end of.”
“I will never knowingly work with a company or organisation that is discriminatory in any way. And, I will always try and work with companies that are as diverse as possible.”
“When I travel I will always aim to be respectful of where I am, the culture and the environment. I will choose locations that are not fragile or considered at risk from over-tourism.”
“And of course, I will do all this by being as kind as I can to myself, others, and the environment.”
