about Marty Ryan
After growing up in Connecticut and graduating from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, Marty Ryan moved to the Columbia Valley in British Columbia, where she has lived for more than 40 years.
A lifelong artist, she taught art and worked as a counsellor at Golden Secondary School for 25 years before she retired to dedicate herself to her art.
She still paints up a storm, but in the last ten years Marty has moved into working with metal, especially bronze and copper.
Marty recently finished a commission for a fireplace installation piece for the Sweeney House near Kelowna. Some photos can be seen on the top right.
