There will forever be something enchanting about neo-traditional animals. Maybe it’s partly due to their coloring, or maybe it’s due to the fact that their postures, poses, and general sense of flight hints that, if not approached with the utmost caution, they’ll skitter off at any moment. Artist Tiny Miss Becca’s unwavering ability to illustrate a sense of natural beauty punctuated with incredible wonder is what sets her neo-traditional animals apart from the pack. Tiny fluttering birds, majestic mountain lions and humble rabbits come together in a woodland symphony that’s equal parts wild imagination and raw talent.
Working out of Jayne Doe Tattoo in Hornchurch, just slightly outside of London, Tiny Miss Becca’s work is wholly neo-traditional in every sense of the word. Jewel tones and art nouveau influences dot her portfolio, evoking a beautiful sense of romanticism. While it’s clear she favors woodland creatures, floral and ornamental elements make frequent appearances throughout the body of her work.
One of Miss Becca’s more impressive traits is her ability to work with any size and nearly any part of the body. This is perhaps best seen in her full frontal mountain lion piece which beautifully incorporates even the incredibly difficult area of the breast tissue, by seamlessly including it as a part of the front haunches of the mountain lion as well as a part of the floral motif that runs throughout the tattoo.
On a smaller scale, she’s able to include minute intricacies that come together to create a beautifully detailed piece. Most prevalent in her rendition of red breasted robins perched atop a vibrant berry bush, Becca ensure that each and every feather, plump red berry, and budding young leaf is taken into account. The same could be said about her version of an adorable hairless cat, wrapped in a geometric sweater. Eyes gleaming with a sense of wonder and ears perked up and incredibly attentive, you’d half expect this tiny cutie to come to life right before your eyes.
While Miss Becca does work out of the UK, fear not, as you can still manage to snag a piece of her art through her shop where she sells t-shirts, tote bags, and prints of her stunning artwork. So if you’re a fan of neo-traditional animals, look no further. Tiny Miss Becca’s talent is anything but teeny.
