Have you encountered artists working in miniature?

Shona Rae, an artist in Calgary Canada, also does micro miniature art but as jewelry. Bigger than the head of a pin, but admirably small for certain. Her site is here: http://shonarae.com/

Has anyone else come across similar artists working in miniature? I'm interested in writing an article incorporating a number of examples worldwide.

    May 9 2011: I've seen a few such things like rice painting (using individual grains of rice as the canvas) but I don't know of any particular artists. and also one guy that built pictures into tinny microscopic circuits, cartoonish little things, but again, can't remember the guys name.
