Biographical Information

Geoff Ryan was born 1944 at Bankstown.

He started painting as an amateur in 1968. In 1975 he moved to Leith, Tasmania to paint full time. He concentrated on Tasmanian bush (wilderness) scenes using oil on board.

In 1982 he started working for the WA Dept of Agriculture but continued painting part time. In 1989 Geoff and his wife moved to Darwin where, once again, he painted full time. It was during this period that he first painted figures in landscape - mustering scenes from Kimberly cattle stations.

He also painted a series of early images of the Top End from the photos of Foelsche.
