The tiny world of Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark is populated with the most adorable small characters! For this class she’s created a little harvest girl who’s looking forward to celebrating the fall holidays. Posed on a wooden base, she proudly holds her pumpkin while surrounded by wooden leaves and an autumn harvest at her feet. All pieces are painted in acrylic paint with designs that Jone provides in a little booklet. The designs are composed of simple lines and dots that are easy to learn, even if you’ve never held a brush before. Jone also includes a diagram to show proper proportions for the face and how to place the features.
Part of the fun of working with Jone is creating little scenes that tell a story. Even more fun is absorbing her clever techniques and seeing the unusual tools she makes from commonplace objects. You just never know what other whimsical touch she might dream up during class. Truly, her world is a charming and magical little place!
This online class will be recorded and made available to class participants for 10 days after the class.

Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark, who says of herself, “I tend to work in a two-inch square!”, has created her own little world of magical delights. Each tiny wonder – from the cleverest fox or hedgehog to a charming parade of flower-bearing young girls – is handcrafted from paper clay, wire, wood, and other tiny bits and pieces. Her sophisticated yet simple designs show the influence of both her father’s Scandinavian heritage and the intricate painted miniatures she collected when living in Switzerland. Her affinity for using small, ordinary objects comes from her mom, also a graphic designer and artist. She taught Jone that you can make just about anything you want instead of going to a store to buy it. Jone’s creative life started on the floor of her father’s studio, where she sat as a child surrounded by brushes, paints, and a treasure of paper.
Her passion for design eventually led to work developing store displays, award-winning lines of decorated papers, and the beloved Bryce and Madeline stickers. One day, after twenty years of licensing her artwork for other people’s products, Jone realized that she needed to get back to basics and simplify. In that moment, her tiny little world was born. Now she spends her time teaching, drawing, painting, and making huge messes on every available flat surface. See her work on Instagram at @jonehallmark.
