I'm Astrid, the face behind Astrid Wilk Studio.
I am a freelance artist based in the Ruhr area. I studied fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Münster and art/ educational science at the Technical University of Dortmund.
Artistic miniatures are my love and my passion.
I create unique and detailed miniatures from polymer clay in my very own style.
In 2020 I started making miniature plants to bring my art and passion for plants together.
The miniature theme runs through all of my work over the past few years.
I invite you to come into my miniature world.
WHY POLYMER CLAY?
My miniature journey began many years ago during my studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Münster.
In my time at the academy, I worked in the ceramic workshop and in mold making looking for a material that was more immediate than ceramics and did not require a special workshop. It was very interesting to take a material that is available to everyone in any craft store and put it in an artificial exhibition context.
I create very special, unique pieces of modern miniature art.
The most sculptures are individual pieces and only available once, some are made in a very small editions.
