Catherine Jane Ryan – Artist

Catherine Jane Ryan is a artist based in Wexford, Ireland.  Her artwork is based on fantastic colours which surround us.

Mood, intuition and the continual joy and richness of possibility excite and inform the work that she does as a painter. Colour illuminates, nourishes and delights her soul. She is transported to the exotic, the familiar and the unfamiliar when she journies with her paints on the canvas. She always arrives safely back home, changed, reassured and greatly enriched by her encounters, she is blessed with her gift to journey and explore.

I would be delighted for you to call out to my studio, to look at the collections, to embrace the colour, and should you feel the desire to have a print, an original or a bespoke card for a friend, I would be delighted to assist.
