Card designs - My Little Log Cabin

Card Designs - My Little Log Cabin

Having always dreamt of having a hideaway in the middle of nowhere, I designed a series of cards featuring log cabins in various places.  With a folksy, simple style, these designs represent the homespun fantasy that owning a log cabin inspire and for anyone who's found themselves scanning small spaces or camper van websites, then this is for you!

Each card is printed from an original design on medium weight recycled card and have a satin finish.  They come with a lovely thick white envelope and make the perfect greetings card for those who have a dream of getting away from it all in a log cabin!

Each card is £2.50 or you can buy a set of 6 for £12.00.

They are available on Etsy on the MushypeaDesign page or at the Arts Hub 47 Lark Lane, Liverpool.

...visit today and treat yourself or someone special to an original and unique Mushypea Design product.

New designs

Have been enjoying making some new paper cut out designs, based on nature as part of work for an exhibition.  The floor is now covered in scraps of paper, but it was worth it!!

Time for Tea!

Teacup Designs

There's nothing like a hot cup of tea in a beautiful teacup, especially when served with a slice of cake...  With that in mind I have developed some of my favourite design obsessions, such as foxes, retro patterns and quirky jazz inspired skylines and hand painted them on to a range of teacups and saucers.  All of the teacups are dishwasher proof and include porcelain and bone china designs.  At present you can buy these at the Arts Hub 47 on Lark Lane Liverpool L17 or direct from me.  They make wonderful bespoke gifts and I am available for commissions if you have a particular design or function in mind.

Porcelain Foxy Teacup £15.00

Porcelain Blue Reindeer Teacup £15.00 

  The teacups are dishwasher safe and would brighten up any afternoon tea party.  They make fantastic gifts and at £15.00 for the porcelain designs and £12.00 for the retro 70's style, you will be owning a complete original.  More pics to follow....

Landscape - Vice Chancellor's Lodge Liverpool University 15.10.2012

TAG presents Landscape an exhibition focusing on our local landscape and our relationship to it.  The exhibition previews on the 15th October 2012 and I have one painting in it called, 'Neston Looking Across to Wales'.  I really enjoyed the theme as I grew up on the Wirral and often walk my dog along the edge of the River Dee.

Love or Nothing / 'Rapunzel - Be careful what you wish for' by Sarah Ryan 10.10.2012

'Rapunzel - Be careful what you wish for'


Hi just to let you know about TAG's, (Toxteth Art Group's), exhibition 'Love or Nothing' at The Florrie, Liverpool from October 10th to 21st 2012.   As part of this collective I have a painting in the exhibition titles'Rapunzel - Be careful what you wish for', which explores the ideas of romance and expectations and puts a twist on the traditional fairytale idea of the damsel in distress being rescued by the knight in shining armour!  The painting is mixed media - ink, gouache and chalk pastel.  The preview was a big success, with over 250 people crossing the threshold to view TAG's work.
