Romantic whimsy + edgy designs

= the genius work of of Rob Ryan.
A friend of mine (cheers Liz!) recently brought this London-based artist to my attention – he creates incredibly intricate (and romantic, *sigh*) paper cuts and screenprints (and tiles, plates, textiles, egg cups…..). 
One word: wowsers.  How incredible would one of these look framed as the focal point in a hallway or living room?!  I *heart* them – such touching words and beautiful designs, but without being sappy and OTT.

He also has a shop on Colombia Road and has work for sale via Etsy – here are a couple of his pieces online right now (LOVING the royal wedding design, I’ve come over all patriotic – wow, that does not happen very often at all):
