Evamarie Ryan received her Bachelor of Fine Art degree from Arizona State University. Her artistic style reveals the influence of many years spent as an award-winning two and three dimensional graphic designer. Evamarie lives in Chandler, Arizona. Evamarie’s inspiration in painting Garden Party I was to use unprimed raw canvas to create the look and tactile nature of textile imagery, while using a contemporary painting style. She adds sweeping strokes of color that dance from one swaying petal to the next, seemingly depicting an imaginary soiree in the garden.
