Mixed Media Is A Pecking Bird By The Sea

Jane Ryan is an interesting mixed media artist, who describes her art projects as toys for adults. They have “very simple mechanisms designed to charm rather than amaze.” And charm they do.

The simple mechanics offer a bit of fun. By turning a handle, you get to see a heart beat, birds pecking a tree stump or little boats rock back and forth. It’s a perfectly whimsical place by the sea.

She uses a lot of reclaimed wood, which gives a beautiful and natural look to her art. While you will see many of the same themes, each piece is unique and often inspired by the sea.
