Trish Billard: Tools and Supplies Toolbox


Trish Billard created this tool tote in a workshop.

Trish Billard exhibited the “Tools and Supplies” toolbox at the Good Sam Showcase of Miniatures. Trish created the toolbox in a workshop hosted by Suzanne-Harrington Cole, in Vallejo, CA. Everyone in the workshop finished the toolbox differently. Trish’s toolbox was painted in trompe l’oeil style, a painting technique used to give the illusion of 3D.

Trish Billard: Cottage at the End of the Lane

Trish exhibited these quarter scale houses at the NAME Sacramento Houseparty. Her description of the project:

“These three houses replicate the illustrations in “The Cottage at the End of the Lane, ” children’s dollhouse story by Elaine Mills. Debbie Young designed and built the kits and taught them as a series of classes. I bought the kits and altered them to even more closely resemble the houses in the story. All three houses have working lights powered from a battery pack hidden within the house. I made all the dolls. The crowded house alone has seventeen of them! Also made most of the animals.”
