Ross Ryan studied at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen from 1993 - 1997. From his home in Crinan, Argyll Ryan has travelled worldwide painting and sketching. Recent trips include the Galapagos Islands, Germany and the Finnish Arctic Circle. 

Although a landscape painter Ross’s main inspiration is the human presence in nature. He feels the history of places acutely, and his series from the Auschwitz Birkenau woods explore the beauty in one of man’s darkest places. His sketches from Berlin with accompanying diary entries offer insight into an artist who thrives on chance, fleeting moments and often an element of danger. He exhibited n May 2018 with a body of work created whilst sailing on the west coast in the winter of 2017.
