Stephanie Ryan is a watercolor artist living in Whitehorse, Yukon.

Originally from Sydenham, Ontario, Stephanie first traveled west in 1994 as a tree planter in Northern BC. She completed her B.A. in Environmental & Natural Resource Studies at Trent University, and ventured further north to the Yukon in 1997. She has worked as a landscaper and garden designer, and more recently as a back country patroller on the Chilkoot Trail.

The wild rivers and mountainsides are inspiring for her art and spirit.

Her winters are spent painting in her studio and skiing in the local mountains. Her paintings each feature a bit of the sense of awe she feels when she is in the mountains, on some great river, or in a beautiful backyard garden.

Quote: Stephanie Ryan
“The North has been my home for the past 20 years and is where I draw inspiration and creativity. There are fewer distractions when I am immersed in a natural setting; sketching beside a river or up a mountainside offer an inspiring perspective, where the continual changes in light, weather, and trip events provide a really unique setting for creating art. What began as a way of sharing the North with friends and family, has developed into a passion for protecting these places that I care about so deeply.”
