A photo of Sharon Ryan

Sharon Ryan is a “late blooming” artist who photographs flowers. She lives in Carlisle with her dog, Ted, the namesake for Ted‘s collection, a free monthly greeting card sent to anyone who wants to be in the “Ted Club.”

Artist Bio
The intricate details emerging from a blooming flower are fascinating to me. Flowers have stopped me in my tracks too many times to count. That person on the sidewalk transfixed by an azalea is me.

In 2018, when I was “between dogs” and walking myself around the neighborhood, I started photographing flowers with my iPhone. My world changed when Ted, a handsome and sweet shepherd mix, came into my life. Discovered in the woods of West Virginia tied to a tree, emaciated and tick infested, Ted was rescued, nursed back to health and found his way to Pennsylvania where he adopted me. On dog walks, I continued taking pictures of flowers, animals and of Ted in a variety of poses and situations.

Fast forward to the Covid-19 pandemic that sickened, isolated and saddened so many people. The idea to design and send greeting cards came to me when I received the equivalent of a holiday card letter in the mail in May 2020. Getting that card and letter made me so happy. It inspired me to spread hope and share inspiration by using my pictures from dog walks and telling cute stories about Ted on each card.

Ted’s Collection came into being in 2020, and in January 2021, the first monthly greeting cards were mailed to the first members of Ted’s Club. Ted’s Club continues to grow. To join Ted’s Club and receive an inspiring, entertaining greeting card every month, send your mailing address to Tedscollection12@gmail.com

Putting some of the photos on the front of greeting cards led me to investigate other ways to use the photos and I began hanging canvas prints in my home. Guests asked me for the name of the artist. Becoming that artist at 60 years of age, qualifies me as a late bloomer. Better late than never!
