A passion for wild creatures and the places they inhabit is reflected in the paintings of Ryan Skidmore. Whether it is wildlife, sporting scenes or pure landscape, Ryan tries to create a connection between himself, the viewer and the things he loves. Using a painterly style, he concentrates more on the effects of light and the essence of a scene than superfluous detail.

In 1998, Ryan received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Utah State University. Previously, he studied at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, where he earned an Associate of Arts degree, and also at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. His education continues today with trips to museums and galleries around the country to study from the masters.
