Here is another post in my occasional series on artists whose work has touched me, and whom I would like to bring to your attention.
Ryn lives in Canada, and designs the most amazing art stamps – very different from much that is available to us. Her collection is growing, and is available here.
Here are an example of her stamps, as used by Linda Cain. (Clicking on this link will take you to Linda’s blog post where she profiles Ryn, in more detail than I am doing.)
Have you ever seen a stamp to produce realistic water droplets like this? Mine is now on order! The moths are amazing too, and on her site you can see that she’s designed flowers and leaves, marine-themed images, birds and – her latest – faeries, to name a few.
Ryn is not yet that well known, but I am sure she soon will be, because of the high standard of her work, and its very unusual and special nature. Her stamps are also made of high quality rubber, cling-mounted, and deeply-etched enough to use on other media than paper – on her site you can see examples in the galleries, of artists using them on ceramics, fabric and glass.
She has also just started a blog, which you can find here.
Check her out – I know you will not be disappointed!
