Jenny Ryrie specialises in watercolour. She has an M.A. in Fine Art from Edinburgh, is a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and is an Associate of the Penwith Society of Arts. She has exhibited nationally and internationally for many years and is based near Chester on the Welsh border, but also has a studio in Cornwall.
Jenny has exhibited with the Thackeray Gallery in London and Kingfisher Gallery in Edinburgh, and for several years she had a series of solo shows with Canyon Road Contemporary Art in New Mexico, U.S.A. Other recent solo exhibitions include ‘Watershed’ with the Belgrave Gallery in St.Ives, Cornwall, and ‘Light and Water’ at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw. She currently exhibits with the Island Gallery, St.Ives.
Her focus on watercolour follows a long tradition in her family going back five generations. Her aim is to push the boundaries of the medium and explore its potential for expression through its unique qualities of translucency and fluidity.
