Kate Ryan


Kate Ryan is a Western Australian oil painter who is particularly interested in the play of light, shadow, and colour temperature. She thinks there is a particular intensity of light and colour which is unique to Western Australia and she tries to capture the essence of these moments in her paintings. Kate's current focus is on coastal images and still life, and she enjoys painting en-plein-air. Kate also paints from life in her Floreat studio, and has had significant success with portraiture and has been a semi-finalist in the prestigious Black Swan (now Lester Portrait Prize) competition.
