Debbie Ryan is an established contemporary mosaic artist who specialises in contemporary mosaics, public art and project management. Debbie creates vibrant and intriguing large-scale contemporary artwork (Read her Blog about an 8m x 4m mosaic mural project for Knowsley Park School) and sculpture for public and private settings. Debbie studio practise is currently based in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Debbie likes to create artwork that explores and celebrates the multiplicity of the natural world. The materials she uses reflect the variety and vibrancy of nature, often using indulgently bright and decorative mosaic forms.
Debbie has worked on a range of projects including Liverpool’s Public Art trails: Go Superlambananas, A Winter’s Trail, and 08 for 08. Debbie’s most recent commission is at the Physiotherapy centre in Aintree Hospital.
Debbie’s artwork was recently selected for display at the World Expo in Shanghai, China in 2010. The large-scale sculpture proved popular with visitors, and was selected to be permanently included in the Expo Museum collection. Read her Blog about her trip to Shanghai.
Debbie has recently came back to the UK after a 5 month research trip and artist residency in New Zealand during Spring 2012. Debbie was invited to exhibit at the British Consul in Auckland, and made a new body of work during an Artist residency at Earthskin Muriwai and gave free workshops to the local community of Muriwai on the north island.
Debbie’s mosaics are in many private collections, as well as public museums and national organisations. Debbie’s success has firmly established her as one of the North West’s leading contemporary mosaic artists.
