Ian Ramsay nació en Farnborough, Kent, Inglaterra, en 1948. Pasó sus primeros años en Bretaña y Canadá, y eventualmente se asentó en Estados Unidos. Recibió un graduado en Arquitectura en la Universidad de Utah y es arquitecto licenciado. En 1979 Ian dejó la arquitectura para dedicarse full time al arte de la acuarela. 
Desde entonces ha viajado y pintado extensivamente. Su trabajo se ha exhibido en Estados Unidos, Japón y Gran Bretaña. Ha participado en jurados, demostraciones personales y talleres de pintura.

Ian lleva adelante un blog en el cual periódicamente publica selecciones de su abundante producción (como él mismo escribió: "...la pintura a la acuarela es una adicción para mí. Pinto casi a diario y obviamente produzco una gran cantidad de trabajos.") con algunas notas introductorias. Su labor pedagógica es importante, y tal como me comentaba cuando me autorizó la publicación de imágenes de su trabajo: "Siempre me hace feliz compartir mi trabajo con cualquiera... con la esperanza de que lo que hago pueda enseñar a otros acuarelistas direcciones nuevas o diferentes."
Conviene echarle un vistazo a su blog y también hay una buena selección en el sitio web de New Masters Gallery.

Ian has a blog where periodically publish selections of his voluminous production (as he wrote: "...watercolor painting for me is an addiction. I paint almost every day and obviously produce a great deal of work.") with some introductory notes about. His pedagogic work is very important, and as he told me when authorizes me to publish images of his work: "I am always happy to share my work with anyone... in the hopes that what I do may help to teach other watercolorists a new or different direction." You should have a look at his blog and there's also a selection of good watercolors in the New Masters Gallery's website.
