Fine paintings with contemporary design and technical skill

When talking about his style and subject matter, Ryan Mellody “looks for the beauty in every day life, whether it’s a stormy sky or the character and emotion of a figure, there is so much beauty around us that if we can just capture a glimpse of it -- with the right color, composition, and brushwork --­ a great piece of art will emerge”. Applying this approach, Ryan creates stunning figures, landscapes, and still lifes with a mastery that is rare to find in today’s dominantly modern art world.

Ryan has had the privilege of painting with and studying from two of our greatest living masters, Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. Through their guidance, amazing knowledge and artistic abilities, he is strengthening his work and becoming an ever better artist.
