Born near Edinburgh in 1972, Ruth graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1994 with a BA Hons in Drawing & Painting/Tapestry.
In 1998, she moved to Shetland to concentrate on her painting.
“My work is based on recent responses to the rugged dramatic environment of Shetland and its visual drama of constantly changing elements against the coastal landscape and the North Sea.”
Ruth has work in private collections throughout the UK & overseas and public collection in The Fleming Collection, London & Shetland Museum. A multi-award winning artist, Ruth now exhibits in leading galleries throughout the UK.
