Teabug Art

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.

Kieren Dutcher Illustration

Artist: Kieren Dutcher

Holiday Sales? YES

Work: My work is inspired by folk art, nature and color. I paint mostly in gouache resist, acrylic inks and watercolor. I sell my illustrations printed on greeting cards, posters. I also make block prints which I silkscreen onto tea towels. My work is sold in 7 local shops/galleries and installed in several local hospitals, and this year, was in a TV show. I have a busy Etsy shop, and before the pandemic, sold at many local craft/art fairs.

About: I am a 3rd generation Oakland native. Went to CCAC, then SFSU for an MA in Art Ed. I’ve taught ART in local schools for 25+ years, now teach part time at NIAD Art Center in the fibers department, and workshops (Handcraft Studio School and Hello Stitch Studio are two I’ve taught at), now all online sadly. Since the pandemic, I’ve started a YouTube channel, demonstrating projects I’ve taught in my NIAD classes, for anyone to try at home.
