Hello to all those interested in my art.  Hope you enjoy my new painting of the Elephants inspired by the display in the American Museum of Natural History in New York, this is a 48" x 60" oil on canvas.  Other news which I am delighted about is that my Cheetah artwork is up and running in the Hamptons so please contact Mark Wilson for more information.  I'm ready to start a new oil painting which I can start over the next couple of days.  At the moment there is a detailed sketch of the interior of St. Patrick's cathedral in New York.  Any questions then please drop me a line and I will do my utmost to answer you and negotiate a price for an artwork with you. 


I am back from a brilliant visit to New York.  The Outsider Art Fair was wonderful and my Cheetah artworks have been left in the USA and taken to Mark Wilson's studio/gallery in East Hampton, all are for sale.  The highlight of my visit was the Art Fair and meeting Jerry Saltz who is a lovely man who insisted on having our photograph taken together in front of the Cheetah oil painting.  During my visit I gathered a lot of information and inspiration for more oil paintings which will be my American Collection.  For now folks keep warm during this cold snap in England and I will include new paintings on this site in due course. 



Happy New Year to all my visitors on this site.  2019 is a busy year for me as I will be contacting at least 50 galleries about my artwork, its taken quite some time to organise which are my favourite paintings and now I'm ready to send the pdf file off.  Don't forget to visit the Outsider Art Fair at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York.  I'm currently working on an oil painting of Fabian and his groom should be ready shortly. 


Well its been quite an exciting week as I have parcelled up the artwork to go to New York tomorrow to Mark Wilson at Wilsonville where it will be exhibited at the Outsider Art Fair in New York from 17th - 20th January 2019.  Jerry Saltz has also given me recently a few shout outs on the oil paintings of Callum, the Black Nun of Moret (or should I say my version of) and this week of Durdle Door.  I've also been contacted by an Art Gallery in Austria which I have responded to as their enquiry as to whether I would be willing to participate in exhibiting with them at Art Fairs and Biennals, this is an exciting time right now, I'll post the results and let the people who are interested in my art know where they will be able to see it next!  On the artistic front I finished the oil painting of Southsea Pier and at present am painting a lovely Shire Horse by the name of Ben with his groom.  I also did an extra watercolour for the Art Fair of a Cheetah.  Will be posted on this site shortly. 


Matt Carey-Williams paid me a visit and had a look at the artwork as a result of discovering my work through Jerry Saltz.  Matt gave me positive feedback on my art and gave good advice.  He has a background with Sotherbys, White Cube and Blain Southern.  He also brought a jar of his home made jam! which is absolutely delicious.  I'm in the process of following Matt's advice and will post the results on this feed.  I have posted a lot of artwork on Instagram follow me to see the works @ryleteresadeborah.


Brilliant news!  Jerry Saltz gave me a good review on Instagram and as a result I have sold a painting to a lady in Texas.  Also I've been asked to reserve my Cheetahs artworks to be added to the Outsider Art Fair in New York in January, thats 7 artworks altogether.  I've also been asked by a gentleman who lives between London and Sandy Lane which isn't far from here if he can come over in August and see my artworks in person, I'm delighted.  There was also an art curator and historican that has been in touch.  All this is thanks to Jerry having faith in my art, I'm over the moon.  My ratings on this site also went up.  So should any of you wish to invest in one of my artworks then please get in touch we can negotiate.



Its been a while but now I have some good news.  The Co-Op is opening a store in Weatherfield, Coronation Street to be precise its a big advertising campaign and to celebrate because I am attached to the Co-Op who did an article in their magazine Lets Talk About Food about my art.  To mark this big spectacular for the Co-Op I have started portraits in graphite of the Coronation Street cast!  They will be added to this site quite soon. 

Now the news involves the young lads being rescued in Thailand.  Back in 2004 I did an oil painting of John Volanthan and Rick Stanton when if my memory serves me correctly both Cave Divers got through to Sump 26 in Wookey Hole Caves in Somerset.  I am sure with their expertise the youngsters in Thailand are in good hands.  Sadly I don't have this oil painting any more it was sold off along with a lot of my art including about 6 other oil paintings of Wookey Hole Caves including a portrait of Penelope Powell and Graham Balcombe.  I also did a couple of paintings of Cheddar Caves.  I am interested in the aspects of Cave Diving and would like to do another painting larger in size celebrating the caving that goes on not far from where I live now.  If anyone has seen the oil painting of  John & Rick please let me know as I have no idea who bought the Wookey Hole Artworks 10 years ago.  Also to my surprise a Dental Receptionist in Gosport recognised Rick Stanton on my way to getting the portrait framed.  Any news regarding my other artworks please let me know where and when you have seen the works.  Wookey Hole works include the Witches Kitchen, Witches Parlour,  The Cathedral Cavern, Into the Light and the two portraits of the divers from the 1930s and 2004.  Thank you in anticipation.

I received an invite from Kingswood School in Bath to attend "Made in Kingswood".  I sent my RSVP and went yesterday evening and it was wonderful, I met some very nice people there, there was Prosecco, fruit juice and canapes in a marquee in the grounds, the students were receiving awards for their artwork and the standard of artwork and designs was astounding, of a very high standard, I am so pleased that I went.  There was a significant depth of knowledge of art being taught in this school and pupils although being taught the same curriculum were able to follow the development of their own ability.  Also their designs for furniture to bicycle racks were so inventive, Kingswood is a good school for pupils who are artistic, creative individuals.  I hope to be invited again.  I met some very encouraging people who appreciate the skills that the pupils show.



My recent oil painting is of Willow, just a small oil painting which I hope people will appreciate, my current oil painting which is somewhat bigger is of Brooke, I aim to complete this painting in the next couple of weeks.  Should you wish to commission me for a portrait then please get in touch so this can be arranged.  If you would like to suggest an oil painting to me as a subject just say what you would like to see and the size of the artwork you would prefer.   Very soon I shall be attending Kingswood School in Bath for the Art and Design and Technology Exhibition, this should be very interesting and it is lovely to have an invite.  I do have in my portfolio some larger oil paintings through drawing inspiration from the city, take a look, if they are too big for your wall space then please let me know and a limited edition print can be arranged.  Should you be in the neighbourhood and wish to view my artwork then please book an appointment with me, artwork can be bought directly from me in the studio if you wish, you will also receive a Letter of Authenticity and a signed invoice.  I look forward to meeting you.

The Sunday Telegraph  -  has today published an article where I have a big mention through Artplode - "Undiscovered artists can win fame as a result says McCarthy: Teresa Deborah Ryle, a self taught naive artist from Corsham, Wiltshire, who markets her works on the site, was taken up by Jerry Saltz, the art critic of the New Yorker, who now champions her work."

Sad news is that the Gainsborough painting "The Morning Walk" otherwise known as "Mr & Mrs William Hallet" was attacked with a screwdriver in the National Gallery in London on Saturday.  The culprit a man in his 60s has been arrested and charged.  The painting has been removed and no doubt will be undergoing repair.  Thomas Gainsborough actually lived for 8 years I believe in The Circus in Bath which is only a few miles away from me and it is believed that The Morning Walk is set in an area just outside Bath in Limpley Stoke which area has not changed since that time, its beautiful countryside around here.  There is also the Gainsborough Gallery in Bath which is worth a visit.
