Announcement    Hi! I'm glad you found my shop! Time is the mist valuable commodity on the planet so I won’t waste yours. No sales gimmicks here. I have been on and off with etsy for most of my time here.

I am an artist. I create things. Like you, I have bills to pay. I price my creations affordably. No fuss, no muss, no gimmicks, just fairly priced items. Thirteen has always been my lucky number, so I'm sharing my luck with you by pricing all my digital downloads at thirteen dollars or less. If the prices here are more than you can afford, hop on over to my patreon page (Patreon.com/ryn1) and for the price of a cup of coffee every month you can have access to a lot of my work.

I take almost all the photos I use with my iPhone and most of the editing takes place on my iPad Pro. The iPad Pro paired with the Apple Pencil has become my paint brush and canvas or watercolors & paper due to having both psoriatic-and osteo-arthritis. This affects my mobility and my ability to hold on to things. On "bad days" I enjoy watching the productions of the movie industry. On "good days" I am still able to craft with traditional items and create physical goods, however, time sees me embracing digital creation more and more.

Long ago I embraced the concept that I am 'perfectly imperfect'. My art is like me. I think the imperfections prove its authenticity. While I love the perfect look of what can be done by machines, I don't care to reproduce it. I love the imperfections that reflect our humanity. Those imperfections make the item more valuable and authenticate the handmade nature of it.

Please...look around, enjoy, and purchase if you are so inclined. I hope that everything I create ends up sharing the space of someone who loves it, someone of like spirit perhaps.

While I strive to create original pieces of art, a past experience makes me a little leery of stating they are "original" (you can read about that on my blog if you are interested). You can find a link to my blog at http://www.ryn1.com and the piece is titled "Plagiarism, Who Me?". Over the years I have looked at a myriad of images and may unintentionally do something very similar to another artists' work. With so many talented people in the world, I'm not sure there is any such thing as "original" anymore unless you've been isolated from the world. So...while striving for original work, the best any of us may ever be able to achieve might be derivative work.

Photos and descriptions are as accurate as I can make them. If you are looking for a "matched pair or set" this is not the place to look.

Digital items begin with one piece that I have created and tweaked and spent hours on. Once I am happy with a design, I re-size it into standard sizes that I hope will print out nicely for you. Every item you receive will be between 300 DPI and 500 DPI which should allow them to print with professional quality. You should be able to make some changes to size and DPI in your printer settings. Printers are all different as are inks and computer/tablet screens, so the images may appear slightly different than what you were expecting. There is nothing I can do about that at this time, however, you maybe able to change some color settings on your end. For me, my screens and printer are calibrated to match what I see with my eyes. It took hours to accomplish and I pray these items never need replacing because I don't know that I could do that again. :)

Thank you so much for your time.

Namaste.

Out with the old, in with the new...wait...whaaaaat?!

As my community service project, I co-founded Rivertown Artists' Guild in the greater Grand Rapids area and gave it 40-80 hours a week for the first three years and then gave an additional two years in an advisory capacity. At that time, I still had four children home, worked part time in the local deli, was a contributing artist and, depending on the day, during our first year of growing the Guild, I would be the acting president, acting vice-president, treasurer, or secretary....during that year several people said I should wear different colored hats for each job because I was very like a chameleon, going from mom to president to toilet scrubber in the blink of an eye......thus, "Kamaileon", the name with which I have signed many works of fine art and calligraphy, emerged.

As a child I often heard that 'idle hands were the devils workshop' and I don't know if that has any merit but, I DO know it is almost impossible for me to sit, doing nothing. I love meditation but find it very hard to do unless my hands are busy. I have watched very few things on TV without having something under my hands...knitting, crocheting, drawing, etc. As I approach retirement age from my full-time work as a licensed massage therapist I find that I spend ever more time enveloped in the addiction of crafting. I love creating things that weren't there before. I love the serendipity that comes with creating in different media because each one has it's own abilities and when you start mixing them together???? that's when the rules go out the window and you wait to see what's going to happen.....and the possibilities are nearly endless.

I love that Etsy provides me an arena to share the things I create with you. I wish Etsy had not adopted some of its recent policies; because of those changes which created irreconcilable differences, I have removed most of my work from Etsy. I hope you will look on rynz-images.smugmug.com. to find my images or on Patreon.com/ryn1. Because of my many years here I will keep a tiny amount of images here just to maintain the legitimacy of my internet history.

You won't find things that are perfect, because I embrace the perfectly imperfect nature of handmade items. But, each thing listed for sale here was created by me in a smoke-free, pet-free environment (sadly, I have developed allergies to many of our furry friends). Each piece reflects an aspect of my spirit and carries within it a little piece of my heart because each piece is made with love. I hope they speak to your heart, because as Exuperay put it so well in "The Little Prince", 'It is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye'. I use the quote without permission, but since first reading that line many years ago, I have made it my personal mantra . Namaste.
