Brand New Designs by Yelena Bryksenkova + Sarah Burwash

August 22, 2013

We are proud to announce that we have two brand new artists in our Red Cap Cards family: Yelena Bryksenkova and Sarah Burwash. Their brand new designs debuted last weekend at the NY Now Gift Show and they are now all available for purchase and browsing on our website.

Yelena Bryskenkova was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia and raised in Northeast Ohio. She was educated at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and the Academy of Applied and Decorative Arts in Prague, Czech Republic, where she received her BFA in Illustration in 2010. She now lives in New England with her imaginary pet elephant and works as a freelance illustrator. Her pen and watercolor paintings are inspired by her love of home and the comfort of everyday objects, as well as more magical, mysterious and melancholy themes.

Visit Yelena at her website, shop her items in our shop, or check out her Pinterest Board.

Sarah Burwash grew up in Rossland, British Columbia and now lives in Halifax, Novia Scotia, where she works full time as an artist and freelance illustrator. Working in a variety of media from drawing and animation to ceramics and installation, Sarah’s work most often takes form in narrative watercolor drawings. Burwash's practice encompasses a lifestyle that approaches all things with intention, creativity and a pioneer spirit.
