Beth Scudder, Pysanky Geek
I learned pysanky from my mother, who learned from someone else. Ain't that the way?
I make pysanky, much of which contains or is inspired by geeky elements. I have sold in person at CONvergence and am also working on selling online. You can also ask me about re-creating a sold egg (although no two are the same), or commissioning a design. They're great for big events like births, weddings, etc!
Pysanky has been around for thousands of years. It's a traditional Ukrainian art form. It has variations in Russian and Czech culture, too, and possibly other places I don't know about.
I can't make any special claim to pysanky - I learned it from my mother, but my family is not Ukrainian. I just really appreciate this beautiful art form.
This process is much more completely described on the LearnPysanky website.
I like pysanky and also other art forms but I do not do this for a living.
