The creations of Lyn Swan quickly gained my attention. Minimal and playful – her items are very original and whimsical and this collection in particular inspired by nature.

As Lyn notes in her online shop: “I was born to work in clay, ever since I remember I have been addicted to clay and been producing for over thirty five years .... yikes ..... that seems a long time, but time flies when you are having fun!” And it surely shows that the artist puts her heart in her pieces.

Chris Brett is a Toronto based mixed media artist with a truly rich and fresh portfolio. It’s easy to see how much urban art and especially graffiti has influenced his work.

As I read in his site: “Chris’ work has a slightly goofy and jaded sense of humor; a laugh to keep from crying sense of mania in rich color and dark tones. A reaction to the good & bad things that life can sometimes hand you.”

Take a look at his delicious spray can art! How original is that?!!

Marina Bychkova is a young super talented doll maker. Her porcelain doll figures are so delicate and expressive, a true tribute to feminine beauty. The brand name “Enchanted Doll” origins from a fictional story of Paul Gallico, where a woman who created dolls put so much love in them and consequently enchanted people at first sight with their life-like beauty.

As the artist states: “My need to work with dolls became evident as a calling when I was six years old. As a child I became painfully aware and appalled at the mediocrity and the uninspired dullness of mass-produced dolls. This profound frustration coupled with my natural sensibilities inspired me to create my own dolls, suited to my own ideas of feminine beauty. A particular point of interest for me was not only the life-like articulation of the body, but also the beautiful balance between a delicate form and an extraordinary function of a doll.”
