Hello!I'm Ruth - Artist, Teacher, Juror
I’m glad you’re here. I offer original artwork, online classes, and (when possible) in-person workshops. I think you’ll like what you see. Take a look around my corner of the web, keep in touch, and let me know how I can make your life more beautiful.
– Artist Ruth
“Ruth has so much to offer in many different aspects of creating artwork. She is approachable and respectful. She ranks well among the other excellent classes I have taken. Ruth is decisive and thoughtful with her answers. Her ability to be personal and honest yet gentle are commendable. The class was worth my time and money and I have come away with many ideas, both theoretical and practical to work with.”
