- About -

Born in Frankfurt, Germany and currently living just northeast of Pittsburgh, PA, Kimberly Ryan's work is influenced by her travels as well her daily life here in Pittsburgh. Living in 6 different states and traveling to many other countries has influenced her artwork extensively. Painting since childhood Kimberly is primarily self taught, although, she has taken private lessons and attended the Chicago Art Institute. With the use of bright vibrant colors, traditional landscapes, gothic Halloween art, and animal portraits, there is a diverse imagery to explore in her work. She believes her work is like a diary reflecting different emotions and time periods of her life as well as her different interests. Creating work that inspires others is the challenge she sees in making something new. She also takes great pride in teaching art to aspiring artists and non artists who attend her classes at Painting with A Twist.
