Kate Ryan – Late Afternoon
|Kate Ryan is a West Australian oil painter. Kate is particularly interested in the play of light, shadow and colour temperature. “There is a particular intensity of light and colour that is unique to Western Australia. We are surrounded by endless magical moments of light and colour in nature and I try to capture the essence of these moments in my paintings.”
Kate’s current focus is on coastal images and still-life and she enjoys painting en plein air (outdoors) and from life but also enjoys time in her Floreat studio.
Kate has also had significant success with portraiture and has been a semi-finalist in the prestigious Black Swan (now Lester Portrait Prize) competition. Her work is now in collections in the UK, USA, New Zealand and around Australia.
