Ryan Walker was born on
September 30th, 1989 in Exeter New Hampshire.
Walker was very artistic from an early age. His parents supported his creativity and
encouraged him to pursue his passion.
After graduating high school, he attended the College of Charleston
where he played baseball and majored in Studio Art. He took the award for ‘Best Painting’ at the
Young Contemporaries Student Show his graduating year. To further his education, he then enrolled in
the Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, Maryland. This institution taught him the techniques of
the old Flemish and Italian Masters in sculpture, watercolor, oil painting and
charcoal. Walker relocated to the Carolinas
to create paintings of the marsh landscape, figures, and still-life. His old-world techniques and new-world style
make his depictions of Kiawah traditional yet fresh.
