When she was a child, Lillian Lee-Wylie would read fairy tales and become fascinated by illustrations of tiny cottages and figurines. Now, at 54, Lee-Wylie is still excited about miniature houses. It’s because the child in her still exists.
Lee-Wylie, who was born in Ipoh but grew up in Gopeng, Perak, could not afford to get those fancy Victorian dollhouses when she was little. But these days, this secondary school teacher needs no magic wand to fulfill her dream. Her creativity allows her to create her own miniature wooden houses at her whim and fancy.
