Ryan Roth is creative in many mediums and forms:  carver, painter, sculptor, graphic artist, jewelry maker, guitarist, drummer, singer, band leader. He grew up in Wauseon, and after high school headed to Kendall College of Art and Design in Michigan.

Ryan honed his carving talent while working for Chad Hartson at Ice Creations in Napoleon. He created huge sculptures from ice blocks using chainsaws and ice picks --- work that required intense concentration. One false move and the ice broke, and it was back to square one. While in creative mode, he might carve for 12 hours straight in freezing weather without a coat, and never notice the cold.
