Miniature Indy Artist Creates Nostalgic, Local Scenes


INDIANAPOLIS — Everything’s cuter in a miniature size, if you ask us.

Amber Theodore, owner of Tiny Happy Place, started creating miniature scenes four years ago. Her intricate artwork includes nostalgic scenes, places around Indy she loves, or childhood memories.

There is a scene representing the bar of Bazbeaux Pizza, where she worked for over two decades. There’s a full bathroom with tiny bottles of Aqua Net hair spray and CeraVe facial cleanser. Earlier in the pandemic, she created a series of black and white thumbnails to capture the general mood of the times.

Theodore also likes to leave miniature surprises around town for people to find. If you come across a little box of Count Chocula in the cereal aisle at the grocery store, it’s probably her. Fair warning though: it’s going to be hard to call this thing.
