Chris Ryan Owner of HostCat

Chris is a professional artist and web designer in Southampton. He is a professional artist with over 30 years experience. Over those years he has worked in every field of the arts.

A Portrait artist painting at butlins holiday camp in Clacton on sea. Creating over 150 watercolour paintings of hotels on the South Coast. Right up to doing a Michaelangelo impression balanced on scaffolding at the exchange pub in Bournemouth.

The World of Web Designing

In whatever creative field he worked Chris has tried to keep a flexibile approach.

Learning new things gives him the challenges he most enjoys. Passionate about everything he does he tries to instill that in his work. It isn’t always easy as he very much believes in being commercial in his approach. Some artists are happy to starve in an attic while they create their masterpiece. Chris prefers to sell and give the customer the product they want.

Southampton Artist

Born and raised in Southampton. He escaped for over 15 years before coming back.
He ran his own successful comics company CM Comics in the 90′s. Painted murals across nightclub ceilings. Sold countless gay artworks to collectors. Created over 8,000 computer graphics images for the Daily Telegraph.

Produced graphic images for photo libraries in almost every country in the world. Including Ace Photo Library in London and Orion press in Tokyo.

Web Designer

10 years ago he started in the web design industry and ran his own web hosting company Neptune Web Hosting.
The web hosting side was a completely new field for him and he took to it very quickly. Now he works exclusively on web design creations. His customers are companies and indiviuals from small to large businesses, individuals and charity organisations.
