About me:

Ryan has over 24 years of experience painting and illustrating in the theme park and hospitality industry. He is known for producing architectural renderings of interiors and exteriors, themed environments, commercial products, storyboards, character design, company branding and company logos. Ryan earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, FL and has a passion for family entertainment. Most recently Ryan’s work was chosen by the city of Hot Springs to be on the city’s new water tower going up behind the Lowe’s building. Currently, he is the Creative Director for David’s Burgers, a small, highly successful restaurant chain in Central Arkansas, and he resides here in Hot Springs with his wife, Wendy. Ryan has previously worked with such companies as Hard Rock Café, Walt Disney World, Bluegreen Vacation Club, Pilgrim’s Chicken, Realm Adventure and Immersion Entertainment, among others. He credits oil painting as a balance to his digital work and draws influence from the works of Vincent Van Gogh along with other post impressionists and impressionists.
