making the invisible, visible

Rya Wu (b. 1993) is a self-taught abstract artist working in painting, glass, and wire sculptures utilizing found materials and upcycled textiles. Drawing from her diverse background in psychology, silversmithing, life coaching, and jewelry making, her art is an open invitation for personal reflection, resonating with the experiences, truths, and emotions of her audience.

With over ten years of experience in jewelry and fashion, Rya creates precious and delicate baubles for the free spirited individualist, the classic minimalist, and the discerning collector.

From the artist: Hiya, I'm Rya. Whatever you're experiencing right now – any feelings, sensations, memories, questions – it's all welcome here. My work is rooted in making the invisible visible and tangible, which I believe has the power to create deep, transformative shifts within. I strive to listen to my guides and play with colors, textures, rhythms, and forms to give our internal experiences a visual voice. Through my art, I hope to affirm and celebrate those on a similar journey. Xx, Rya
