This adorable pic has sat in my favorites for quite awhile. Was waiting for the right person to send it to--now have a niece/nephew w/2 kids. But I couldn't resist buying one for myself too--at the very least to put w/all the other funny pics on my fridge. Really well done. Packed very carefully. Would buy from artist again.

Oh l'amour! A crimson sunset sets the scene for a night of romance and enchantment for two beguiling bunnies in this atmospheric and colorful Valentine card.

About

Specializing in watercolor, with my art I like to expose poignant, offbeat and humorous moments in the natural world.

I came out of the womb ready to study the likes of Beatrix potter and Hilary knight and other children's book illustrators whose works I poured over for hour upon hour. I've hardly changed I'm proud to say ;)
Grew up in a rural'esque town in Ct and a family that revered and loved animals, early on i combined my love for animals and the natural world with my love of painting and drawing.
With age and 'hard knock life lessons' years later attending art school in New York
City, my humor developed a certain sarcasm and irreverence I like to unleash ever so daintily from time to time with my work. It's a tough world out there with no guarantees, all lessons I've had to learn and relearn as I grow older, but I always return to my cozy crew of chickens, cats, dogs, bunnies, wombats etc., as they can't help but bring out the boundless child in me that runs barefoot through the woods mouth wide open with awe and wonder.
My most numerous products are my greeting cards, fun to produce as well as be
fairly prolific, my history with greeting cards goes back to when I was a little child and first folded a piece of paper in half. To this day I have never bought a greeting card, just always made my own, and the thought of turning it into a business of didn't come until years later. I try and treat my cards now the way I always have as far back as a kid, as little works of art not merely 'cards' or 'afterthoughts' they deserve to be little 'events' themselves when opened, and I always enjoy hearing something to that extent from my customers.
Still loving working with paper, years later I grew more sculptural with my work, turning some of these characters of mine into actual three dimensional artworks, through a lot of trial and error, various glues, blood sweat and glitter, my other line of paper sculptures came into existence. Depending on my work
schedule etc. you may see one or two or a bunch, I dearly love creating them but it's a very laborious process taking many many hours to do. The result however, I think is pretty darn special if I do say so myself, and as far as I know I haven't seen anything else like it out there...
I suppose that's enough of my story for the present. Just an ever creative, emotional and passionate guy from the Connecticut now living in New York City trying to make a go with his art. Grateful for venues like etsy, and it's been a really fun learning process since 2009.
Maybe I'll write more later, or maybe not ;) but one thing is I certainly welcome any questions you may have. If you've gotten this far I salute you and thank you for your time :)

Kind regards and thanks,
Tyler Maclean Humphreys

Thanks for stopping by my shop! Hopefully you will leave with a smile on your face…maybe even giggle a bit. My early days and background are based in drawing and painting. Pen and ink and watercolor have always been my tools of choice. My passion for nature and animals heavily influences my work. Also my love of mythology, folklore and children’s’ literature serve as great inspiration for me.

My desire to turn my paintings and characters in a more three dimensional light happened by accident only a few years ago. I started wadding up various types of paper creating dimension, volume and form. It became an experimental process as I went on to apply different glues, acrylic paints, etc. Finally I had developed my own sort of paper mache method…or ‘tylerche’ I guess. Each piece, from my small mice up to my big santas takes hours of time and meticulous attention to detail. But it’s a labor of love and hopefully you will see a lot of passion behind my work. I love the concept of creating something from nothing: what starts as a small wad of paper grow into a bold and beautiful work of art.

I welcome your feedback and hope you will continue to visit as my shop evolves and I add new pieces to the collection. To get an idea of my range and past works, you can also visit my website, www.tylersworkshop.com

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I certainly do do custom orders when I can and if time permits. If you have an idea for a painting or sculpture, etc. by all means please inquire. With age comes wisdom, and I've learned not to overcommit myself as I've often in the past. it al depends on my current work load, time of year etc. I may have to add you to my 'waiting list'.
