Meet Ruby Silvious
Through-out our site, we've sprinkled graphic elements from artist Ruby Silvious. Her whimsical digital graphics and watercolor mini masterpieces can be found on our pages, in her books and soon-to-come, on gifts and teaware - so check back often.
Ruby Silvious is internationally recognized for her miniature paintings and collages on the used tea bag. On January 3, 2015, she started a project called 363 Days of Tea, a visual daily record of her impression of the moment, using the emptied-out tea bag as her canvas, and altering it to create a new work of art every day for 363 days. She draws, paints, prints and collages moody, evocative and sometimes whimsical art on used teabag paper. She is the author of 363 Days of Tea: A Visual Journal on Used Teabags (Mascot Books, 2016), and the newly-released Reclaimed Canvas: Reimagining the Familiar (Mascot Books, 2019). In her new book, Ruby wants viewers to keep an open mind and think beyond the boundaries of what they may consider traditional art.
Her work is featured on the cover of Ticketed Magazine as one of the best visual artists of 2020.
Ruby provided the colorful, whimsical artwork for the launch of TeaMarketPlace and our downloadable menu shells. Check back often for more of Ruby or ready more about Ruby at www.rubysilvious.com
