With an ever inspiring landscape and lifestyle, Ryde uses her developed aquarelle technique with swift and precise line. In Italy she also uses acrylic on canvas  which gives a spontaneous and energetic quality . With years of watercolour experience Ryde uses her refined skill to arrive at just the perfect moment to feel the light under the Italian sky...

geboren am 1964 in Kärnten.
Studium der Malerei an der Akademie der bildenen Künste in Wien bei M. Prachensky, 1991 Diplom
Lebt als Maler und Musiker in Klagenfurt. Kunstpreis 2012 der Kärntner Volksbank. Er schafft mit seiner Malerei Stimmungsbilder, die in verschiedenen Werkgruppen enstehen. In der Werkreihe COW, spielt er gekonnt mit dem Thema Porträt in der Kunst. Stolz tragen seine tierischen Hauptdarsteller ihren Festtagsschmuck und posieren selbstbewusst für den Maler, welcher das Motiv durch eine ganz eigenständige malerische Handschrift, technische Brillianz und einen erfrischenden Hang zur Ironie zu einem Kunstwerk umsetzt. In anderen Werkreihen nimmt er mutig auch politische Themen auf und will z.B. mit seinen ‚Favelas‘ auf die Armut in Südamerika hinweisen.

Studied painting at the Academy of fine arts in Vienna by M. Prachensky, diploma 1991. Lives as a painter and musician in Kärnten. Art-prize 2012 of the Carinthian Volksbank. He creates with his painting mood-images that arise in different work groups. in the series of works ‚COW‘, he skill-fully plays with the topic of portrait in art. Proudly wear his animal actors their holiday jewellery and self-consciously posing for the artist, which catches the subject through a completely independent picturesque style, technical brilliance, and a humorous approach. He takes up brave political topics in other bodies of work and i.e. indicates the poverty in South America with his 'Favelas' series.
