A microscopic artist could be an illustrator of scientific pictures
(see: http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/299/5603/49)

Now it seems to apply to someone who makes microscopically small pictures
(eg on a pinhead!).

I am quite sure a miniaturist would call himself just that.

wonder what he did - it sounds different from "Miniaturist"!
