Eventide, oil on canvas, 16" x 20", 2010

M.S.Ryan received his BFA and MA in painting at the University of Iowa where he studied under Michael Tyzack, Byron Burford, Joe Patrick, and Howard Rogovi. He currently exhibits at Iowa Artisan's Gallery in Iowa City, Oasis Gallery  in Amana, Iowa and Wiederspan Gallery in Cedar Rapids.

He says about his work "I was trained as an abstract painter and still use the techniques I learned early on.  The most important thing to me is that the hand of the artist is apparent in all my work.  Consequently, you can expect to see vigorous and very expressionistic brushwork, formal design elements and color theory, and a  highly individualistic style."
