Lori Ryerson

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, Ontario

In my early years, I focused on music and the performing arts. As a teenager, a family interest in all things Japanese led to an appreciation for clean, spare lines, and fine details. As an adult, I spent 16 years studying flying trapeze with a circus school in Toronto (my home and native land), which had a profound influence on the person I am now, and how I have come to view the world. It also created an inadvertent ability to photograph things in motion, which comes in handy when I photograph wildlife.

I retired my fly wings in 2013, but continue to be involved in Toronto's circus community with my camera. And the wildlife thing has expanded into a landscape thing. Melding this all with a life-long love of travel, I have created art in some inspiring locations in North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

I'm delighted that my work has found permanent homes in both private and corporate art collections in both Canada and the United States.
