Ruth's unique approach to art is evident in her work. She says she often lets the canvas speak for itself, choosing to create a feeling or soul of a subject rather than a realistic depiction. Ruth is greatly inspired by nature where she spends many hours on a painting often using rich hues and multiple layers of textures. The end result is a painting which conveys different emotions to individual viewers. With more than a decade of painting, Ruth continues to grow and refine her work to connect her subjects with art lovers.
