Portfolio for Susan Ryder RP - Commissionaportrait

Susan Ryder was born in 1944. She studied at the Bryan Shaw School of Painting in London from 1960 - 64. She was elected a member of the New English Art Club in 1980 and to the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 1992. Susan was elected Vice President of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in 2002. Since the age of 18 she has exhibited regularly in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and in many other mixed and group exhibitions. Her main London gallery is W.H. Patterson, 19 Albemarle Street, London, where she has had 3 solo exhibitions, at the latest, 1999, all 60 paintings exhibited were sold in the first week. Her work can also be found at the Mall Galleries, Manya Igel Fine Art, Richard Happen Gallery, Brian Sinfield Gallery, Island Fine Art and other countrywide galleries. Although well known for her portraits and interiors, it was as a landscape painter that she received her first award. Many prizes followed for both her portraits and interiors, with commissions to paint at fine country houses both in the United Kingdom and further afield. Her portrait commissions include a wide range of people, most notably, in 1981, HRH The Princess of Wales in her wedding dress and recently, HM The Queen, to celebrate the Royal Automobile Club's Centenary. In 1999 one of her portraits was chosen to hang in the National Portrait Gallery. Susan Ryder is married to Martin Bates and divides her time between London and Scotland.
