Sue Ryan

In 2008 Sue Ryan began researching a new movement, which saw drift nets being repurposed as weaving material, her visual acumen naturally aligned with the environment protection origins of the GhostNet project. Ryan majored in printmaking at Qld College of Art, and was a founding member of KickArts in Cairns twenty years ago. She has regularly exhibited paintings and prints and also spending several years managing the Lockhart River Art Centre. The mission to support and advance the development of GhostNets Australia brought a freedom to expand Ryan’s own artistic repertoire.
