Ryan Vai (b. 1987)

Ryan is an emerging Artist & devoted student of Nature.

Her body of work includes delicate hand made wreaths, 

and classical oil paintings. Raised in Chadds Ford, PA, 

She grew up exploring the grounds at Longwood Gardens, 

and admiring local icons such as Andrew Wyeth at the

Brandywine River Museum. Her early fascination with organic

splendor and highly curated aesthetics led her to study at 

Moore College of Art in Philadelphia as a young adult. Ryan’s 

current body of work marries wild spaces with her discipline 

and training in the Fine Arts.
