I own and operate a private practice in Painting Conservation. We adhere to the American Institute of Conservation’s Code of Ethics that requires documentation, photography, and reversibility of materials, executed in a professional manner. Conservation treatments can return your painting to near its original appearance. It is possible to repair punctures, tears, flaking paint, and discolored varnish layers. Paintings on canvas can be patched or lined to repair tears. Ground layers can be consolidated. Flaking, cupping, and cleaving paint can be reattached. Grime and discolored varnish can be removed. Panel paintings can be cleaned and the cracks repaired.

The work of Ryan Blake shows an influence of nature and natural processes. Blake’s work also displays a simplicity of form. He holds in high regard, those cultures which are centered on a balance as well spiritually display a connection to nature. Blake’s exploration of other mediums led him back into ceramics with an even deeper sense of meaning. His beliefs around art as communication is not limited to clay; even though there is a sense of loyalty shown to it. To Blake, clay has a healing power; clay is therapy. Clay is a means to connect with people; to bring meaning and make sense of this world.

I was born in Madrid, Spain in 1986. On a day between then and now I picked up a crayon and haven’t stopped scribbling since.
I attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana and I am currently seeking commission jobs.
For as long as I can remember I have been drawing and painting-making images. I can’t say “making art.” It’s too difficult to determine when someone actually starts making art. Either way, I have been at it for what seems like my entire life. So much that it has become less something that I am doing and more something that I am.

I am inspired by the memories I associate with my identity, the effects of emotional labor, and the associated stereotypes. I use unique forms of storytelling to share concepts rooted in my own life. Each piece is a reflection of these experiences, and that of others. We can all relate to wearing masks to achieve the accepted standard within our own combination of subgroups. Growing up semi-isolated did not make me exempt from being implanted with habitual patterns, but it did allow time for me to develop an uncommon perspective.
