Created collaboratively by Ana Maria Selvaggio, "Ria" (Renmeleon) and her daughter, Ysa Seaton (RockPaperFox), Two Crows Market is the culmination of their combined love of building and supporting creative communities.
     "Our goal is to provide a support environment for creatives year-round from providing resources to training and creative workshops. It has always been important for me to empower other creatives with the tools they need to thrive." Ria says. "There is room at the table for all of us and I've always been a very 'lift as you climb' kinda girl."
     Two Crows Market is a test to see if a family-run, creativity-driven storefront in the future is viable.

Why "Two Crows"?

     "We had heard a crow version of the Old English nursery rhyme about magpies a few years ago and 'Two crows for joy' stuck with us. Animal messages as guides have always played a big part in our lives. Crows are a symbol of transformation and intuition. They are seen as symbols of death, but it is a death to old ways and a bringing about of new beginnings, not death in the literal sense. Changing up how we work together toward common goals, crow symbology worked."

A Long Creative History

     Ria has always involved her daughter in her creative process. Professionally, Ysa has been helping her mother teach children and adults since she was six years old. Growing up in a very creative household, Ysa was taught technique but given the freedom to break all the rules and make it her own. A jill-of-all-trades like her mother, Ysa calls herself an "Original Remix". While she loves and works in several different mediums in both 2D and 3D art, over time she has gravitated heavily to drawing; analog and, more recently, digital. As part of her continued, college-level homeschooling, Ysa will be entering into a professional contract with her mother to illustrate one of Ria's children's books.
Collaborations Elsewhere

     Ria runs a board game night every second Thursday of the month from 7-10pm for her Kentucky Browncoats at Bad Wolf Gaming in Berea. 
     Ria and Ysa are also collaborating on several other projects that will be announced on their respective sites.
