Biography

As an artist I am concerned with the subtle, yet, dramatic relationship between all components of our environment. To fulfill the requirements of this idea, my artwork utilizes a variety of media, form, and scale. I integrate collected objects into my work as a metaphor for the cycle of change that all materials and objects are affected by, including myself. This process provides a vehicle for me to consider my place on earth and my part in nature.

Professor Ramsay has taught at Oklahoma State University since 1990 and served as the Head of the OSU Art Department from Fall 2008-Fall 2012. Ramsay has taught workshops in numerous locations around the world and during the summer of 2008 taught jewelry making classes for the University of Georgia, Study Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy. Ramsay has been awarded artist-in-residencies at the Oregon School of Arts and Crafts, in Portland, OR. and Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island, Maine and during the summer of 2013 was awarded an Open Studio Residency at Haystack School of Crafts, Deer Isle, ME. His artwork is in several personal collections and the permanent collections of the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK., Children’s Hospitals of Cleveland, OH., and the botanical gardens of Southern Living Magazine, in Birmingham, AL.
