About the artist

Hi there, and thanks for visiting my website! My name is Ryan and I’m a passionate fine art artist who uses oil paints on canvas to convey emotion others can relate to. I’m so grateful that I get to share my work with the world.

A little bit about me: I found my passion for the visual arts back in high school and have been creating work ever since.

Over the years I’ve tried (and still use) different mediums including pencil, clay, pastel, and oils. There was always something that I found special about oil painting that kept me going back to it.

I graduated from Salem State College and received a BA in fine arts and design. However, despite my formal training have always considered myself self-taught.

I’ve always had my own painting style, but over the past few years I decided to invest more time in learning more about the craft of oil painting so that I can reinvent my style while looking to get my works into galleries, and into the homes and businesses for people to see.

I hope you enjoy your time here. Send me a message if you have any questions about my work or the commission or sale of any of my pieces.

Commission a painting

A commissioned oil on canvas painting can be completed in about six weeks, depending on size and my commission schedule at the time of your order.

I work primarily using photographs for reference. I’m happy to take the photographs myself whenever possible, or I can create the portrait from reference photographs provided by the client.

I can create any size portrait you would like. Paintings start at $500 for an 11 x 14 inch canvas painting. Custom size canvases are available. Contact me for a size and price that best suits your needs.

A 50% deposit is required to begin a commission. All applicable sales tax and shipping charges are additional when required.
