The annual exhibition of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters Sculptors and Gravers is a showcase for some of the best artists in the world and we are always pleased to display Lana’s unique work. Her figures and buildings have great charm and humour and they are painted with painstaking detail. While fine detail is an absolute requirement for miniature work, I feel that painting on three dimensional subjects adds greatly to the difficulty, but is certainly not evident in Lana’s work.
We look forward to seeing her mini-masterpieces in our exhibition for many years to come and we are pleased to have Lana as an associate member of the Society.

The Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers was founded in 1896 by Alyn Williams who was the first President, a position he occupied until 1898, and then again from 1908 until 1941. The Society's Inaugural Exhibition, held in 1896 in the Modern Gallery, was the first to be devoted exclusively to contemporary miniatures and was an immediate success. King Edward VII granted the Royal Charter in 1905. In 1926 the RMS extended its welcome to other forms of miniature art. Recognition of this wider scope was officially confirmed when Sculptors and Gravers were added to its name by Royal Command of King George V.
The Society's Aims are to Esteem, Protect and Practise the traditional 16th Century art of miniature work, emphasizing the infinite patience needed for its fine techniques.
