"Alan Ryan was
born in 1966 and grew up in Skerries. He moved to Wexford in 1998 with
his partner Eimear, who teaches locally. He studied Geology at Trinity
and has worked and travelled extensively in outback Australia. The Balfour
Downs painting is part of a series inspired by a
time spent camped at Balfour Downs Cattle Station in the remote Pilbara region
of Western Australia."
An infrequent painter in the past,
I intend to
devote considerably more time to it in the future.
