Ryder went to university in Manchester and Exeter, completing a degree in Illustration.
“I just let my imagination run wild,” explains Ryder. “I have an ability to paint what I see in my mind’s eye, and work in acrylics which dry quickly for speed, but also give great colour and depth. I always tackle the hardest parts of a painting first, then start to relax.”
Ryder’s work is sophisticated and naïve at the same time. He uses his strong understanding of light, colour, composition and form to help his paintings come to life and connect with people.
