Rhya Tamasauskas is a Toronto based writer and visual artist. She grew up in the small village of Priceville, Ontario and spent most of her time running along concessions mapping her memories with gravel roads and river stones. She began documenting her day-to-day life at the age of seven in a brown daily diary given to her by a close family friend and has not looked back since.
Since completing her B.F.A from Ryerson University in image arts, she spends most of her days knitting wonders out of words, stitching street wear for robots and sewing all the many monsters and creatures that fall out of her eyes, ears, mouth and nose. She is an active member the independent writing collective Tuesday and a partner in the soft sculpture company The Monster Factory and Farms.
