"American painter SALLY RYAN has settled on Inishbofin, County Galway. Sally's paintings are a wondrous mix of beautiful technique and sensual and often disturbing imagery that only reveal all of their detail with repeated study. Pictured at left is her "Medusa on HRT," 51" x 46", while below right is a detail of a Ruby Figure from "Pet," 48" x 79." Originally from Michigan, Sally is one of the best known painters in the American Midwest, where she has had many one-artist exhibitions and won several awards. She was also commissioned to paint a portrait of Michigan Supreme Court Justice Lawrence Lindemer. Her paintings can be seen as far afield as Maine and California, while in Ireland they can be found in the Solomon Gallery in Dublin's Powerscourt Townhouse Centre. Sally can be reached at (095) 45893, or on her Website at http://people.mw.mediaone/saintryan."
