Meet Ruth

I'm a mixed media artist who did not start painting until I was 49 years old.  I was always into crafts, scrapbooking and sewing but had no idea I could paint.  Years of lessons, practice and more practice have paid off!

I have lived many different places including Germany and am most influenced by my childhood and simpler times.  My mother is an artist who does mostly impressionist work in pastels.  My landscapes tend to also be more abstract/impressionist as well.  I love painting childhood images, animals and dreamy landscapes the most and I'll leave realism to other artists.
