Tales and Art in a Small Scale with a Big Heart


This is a place for all things diorama; how the build dioramas and what to put inside them. I make these in 1/6 scale, but the fun thing about dioramas is that you can build them in any scale and take them apart after photographing. They don’t take as much space as dollhouses do, since you can store the walls flat and the furniture pieces in piles or boxes. This page is divided in rooms and diorama items, but obviously these sections have more or less overlapping between each other.

Hello, and welcome to my world!

I am Marianne Tahko, a Finnish artist and writer. I have made art all my life, and I’m mostly self-taught. In 2006 I started collecting fashion dolls and shortly after customizing them more to my liking, and writing stories with them as my characters. I’m now writing those stories – or tales, as I like to call them – as books I hope to publish in the future. My favorite genre is magical realism; I like painting realistic looking personalities and writing magic into their lives. I hope you find joy in my work. Any questions? Let me know!
