Welcome to Ravensara's online Gallery
After 20 years of promoting creative artisans from our shop on Wellington Street in Ottawa, we now offer our curated art and gifts online exclusively. Our new home base is next to the Rockies in Calgary Alberta and the good news is we deliver across Canada.
Artist Frederica Tomas was born in Toronto, Canada and attended the Ontario College of Art, where she studied printmaking and won a scholarship for Book Arts. After graduation she pursued her artistic muse creating linocuts which are primarily portraits of Saints, Sinners and Strange Beasts, with a bit of Pop Culture commentary. Her linocuts are printed onto japanese paper using a vandercook SP15proof press and rubber based inks, then painted with watercolours. Frederica now lives in the Ontario countryside with Jim and her canine companion, Sam. She listens to Bob Dylan everyday.
