Though animated with a subtle quick wit that could make even the Grinch laugh in conversation, Ryn is sharply focused. She thoughtfully pieces together modules and connecting outdoor porches and corridors in LF's porch house studio as though they are patchwork squares in a carefully stitched together tapestry. You can tell from her demeanor that she's not afraid of a challenge — Ryn will artfully tackle anything you send her...
