I'm constantly creating new paintings: please visit my FaceBook page "By Sea and Storm - Fine Art by Tom Ryan" or my Instagram page - "tomryan_marine_and_monster_art" - for the latest works. All of my original paintings are created with seawater or rainwater, depending on the subject. And, in addition to traditional brushes, I use improvised painting implements - including seashells, sponges, fossil shark teeth, seabird feathers, and drift wood - to create each traditional-style piece. I work in different mediums for different projects and enjoy experimenting and combining mediums to create something new and unexpected.
I generally paint scenes of sea-life, storms, seascapes, life in Florida, and whatever happens to strike my mood at a particular time. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but it was our annual trips to both the Jersey shore and Florida which forged my fascination with the ocean. While other kids were playing in the sand, I remember sitting on the beach with my sketchbook and drawing the water in front of me, envisioning treacherous storms at sea and prowling sharks below the surface. After high school, I attended an art school outside of Philly, but switched over to Penn State University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Art degree. In 2012, after spending nearly every summer in Florida since the early 1970's, my family and I relocated permanently to the sunshine state.Today, I continue to pursue my passion of art. The reoccurring themes in my work include: sharks and sea-life; storms; life in Florida - at the beach, at the theme parks, and beneath the waves; and anything I find interesting. I specifically use ocean or rainwater from the particular place I'm painting.
For example, for my Jaws movie-inspired paintings, I use ocean water collected from the coast of Martha's Vineyard, where the 1975 film was shot. And, in addition to traditional brushes, I use improvised painting implements - including seashells, sponges, fossil shark teeth, seabird feathers, and driftwood - to create each traditional-style piece. I enjoy painting in different styles, and combining different mediums.In my spare time I enjoy the three S's - surfing, sailing, and scuba diving. I also like to travel and visit new places around the state of Florida - which has countless towns and beaches to explore and paint. As a family, we make weekly pilgrimages to both the beach and to Disney World.
