So Jeo LeBlond: Pysanky Easter Eggs

So Jeo LeBlond is a very talented self-taught egg artist based out of Scotsburn, NS, Canada who creates Pysanky or Ukrainian Easter Eggs. 

With the traditional Ukrainian Pysanky technique on real egg shells using beeswax and dyes she creates mind boggling designs. The last step of the step involves removing the applied wax with candle to finally reveal the stunning patterns. She uses varied kinds of shells from tiny finch eggs for making earrings to large ostrich eggs. 

Her work has been published in the Egg Artistry Guild of Australia Inc. as Featured Artist, Quarterly Magazine, the International Egg Art Guild Magazine, Weranda's April 2012 Edition and Medasset's (Mediterranean Association to Save the Sea Turtles) 2014 Easter Card. Her work can be found in private galleries and collections worldwide. She has an online store where you can find her work available for purchase.
