Ross Ryan studied at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen from 1993 - 1997. From his studio, perched above Crinan Harbour, Ross enjoys spectacular views looking southwest across the sound towards Jura. Balancing the life of a sailor and painter, Ross has spent 3 years predominantly painting outside, often on deck of his 1947 wooden fishing boat The Sgrabh. For his forthcoming exhibition in May 2020 he has chased heavy weather across the islands of Scotland, painting seascapes full of the energy and drama of Atlantic storms.

Ross solo exhibition Batten Down the Hatches took place in May 2020.

Ross' work was exhibited in the exhibition A Family Affair alongside the work of his mother, the painter Frances Macdonald, in December 2020. Click here to purchase the accompanying catalogue.
