Artist: Tatyana Ryevzina
Holiday Sales? YES
Work: I draw and paint using mostly watercolors, gouache and ink, as well as make some collages with painted paper. I really enjoy making original greeting cards and bookmarks. A lot of my work is intuitive and inspired by the natural world. One of my goals is to help make original artwork more accessible for every budget.
About: I have been making art since childhood. I grew up in Russia and have several artists, tailors, poets and architects in my family tree. I studied art and architecture in college, but ultimately pursued a career in alternative medicine. While being sheltered in place this year, my artwork stash kept growing, and with encouragement from friends and family, I decided to start an Etsy shop for my original pieces. I am loving this aspect of creativity, deciding which pieces to put out into the world and sending something lovingly made by hand to another human being.
My day job is practicing acupuncture in a community clinic I helped found 12+ years ago. I live in Richmond with my spouse and two cats.
