Since completing [with distinction], a Bachelor of Art at RMIT, Nina Ryan has exhibited consistently for the next 25 years.
Ryan has been selected for inclusion in a number of art prizes including the John Leslie Art Prize for landscape, ANL Maritime Art prize (6 times), Castlemaine Regional Gallery Art Prize, Williamstown Festival Art Prize and the McGivern Art Prize.
Whether Nina's subject is landscape, portrait or domestic, her interest lies in delving into the subject/image, paring away at irrelevant features so as to arrive at a truer instance of reality.
Ryan is included in the collections of Art Bank, Western Mining Corporation, Maroondah City Council, Melbourne Port Corporation, Peter McCallum Hospital, St Vincent’s Hospital and in private collections Australia wide.
