Lorraine Loots is a Cape Town based miniaturist who, to challenge herself, committed to painting one miniature painting every day for a year. Each piece is roughly 3 cm by 3 cm in size. Watch this video about the artist and her admirable project ‘365 Paintings for Ants.’

‘365 Postcards for Ants’ is the second phase of this project, which started 1 January 2013. In celebration of Cape Town’s designation as World Design Capital 2014, she created miniature paintings, ‘postcards’ that were Cape Town themed.
