Gerry Ryan is the owner and operator of Paper Farms. She makes photographic and graphic design assets including photographic overlays, patterns, digital paper, and illustrations. A few years ago she left her job as a biologist and university lecturer and started making art full time She started out as a classical realist painted (you can see her work here), but after realizing that computers are less messy than paint, she taught herself Photoshop and started making graphic assets. Her main focus these days is on photo-editing resources. The intersection of her backgrounds in graphic design and realism painting have been really valuable in helping her create photo realize overlays and images..
