Joan Ryan

As a self taught artist I've been drawing and painting commissions, portraits, landscapes and seascapes for over forty years and enjoy working in most mediums. 

I've always enjoyed the discipline and challenge of realism. I enjoy what I see and try to express this enjoyment delicately in my paintings. 

I am inspired by the beauty that is all around us. It could be just the subtle change in light on a person's face or article. I enjoy painting the most ordinary of moments especially children and animals and their natural little characteristics. 

The world of nature provides endless opportunities to explore. New avenues open up each year with seasons of change

While still studying under "trial and error" exploring new avenues, it has always been all good fun and an enjoyable hobby,.
