About Me

Agnes Horvath

I’m Agnes Horvath, a Hungarian artist living in North England. My passion lies in creating 1:12 scale realistic miniatures. My miniature replicas are inspired by period furniture and traditional food from my favorite era, the 19th and 20th centuries.


With the development of PAC-PEN, I've been able to refine my own artistic journey and offer a helping hand to other artists, enabling them to craft their miniatures with a level of precision and detail that was previously hard to achieve.

    Art has always been a passion of mine. From a young age, I was drawn to drawing and began creating art as soon as I could hold a pencil. I had the privilege of studying drawing under the tutelage of the renowned Hungarian graphic artist Sandor Szerdahelyi. In the early '90s, I started experimenting with pottery clay and created my first ceramics. In 2016, after moving to England, I discovered polymer clay and was immediately captivated by its versatility and potential. This new medium added a fresh dimension to my artistic repertoire. 

I have a diverse background in photography, history, and anthropology. I used to work as a cataloguer/researcher in an auction house in Budapest before I left Hungary. This is where I developed a deep appreciation for the past and its treasures. I learned how much we can learn from the past, from the events that shaped our history, from the objects that reflected our culture, from the technology that changed our lives.

This is why I love every aspect of making miniatures, from the research to the photography. I want to preserve the past and share it with the future by making replicas of vintage (antique or retro) everyday home objects and traditional foods in miniature size. I believe that these miniatures are not just beautiful and realistic, but also educational and meaningful. 

Historical accuracy is paramount in my work, so I craft my pieces using materials that would have been used in their full-sized counterparts.

I am constantly inspired by the world around me and the history that has shaped it. I am grateful for the opportunity to share my passion with others and to help preserve our heritage for future generations.
