Ren Adams Artist and Freelance Writer

I have long admired Ren Adams, a spectacular Artist who specializes in Chinese brush painting. I bought the most beautiful watercolor painting by Ren, a Pink Peony (see above) . She is really fabulous, sends the most fun packages when you shop her Etsy shop Plastic Pumpkin.

You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw the article she wrote this week for Hand Made News featuring my Russian Doll Coloring Sheet pdf. I'm such a fan of hers I cried! lol Not only is she a fab artist but she is also a terrific freelance writer.
If you would like to get to know Ren better join me in following her tweets on plasticpumpkin. She is very fun and also philosophical which she gets more in depth with on her website.

Hi Amy... I liked pasticpumpkinc works a lot... I didn't know him.
That ethereal atmosphere is something that I like a lot.
leaning that the oriental elements are things that fascinate and seduce ours the in the Westerner at a long time.
Your version with peonias this a lot of chic.
I loved!

Oh my gosh, Amy! Thanks for featuring the feature. hee hee.

You absolutely deserve a feature! Your work is outstanding. Very clean, well planned, and lyrical.

I'm so glad you love the peony painting. I had forgotten which piece you owned.

*big hugs to you*
