Own Practice

Ruth's work explores human relationships and the self, especially the ways that small changes can have large impacts on overall interpretation. Her practice ranges from drawing and figurative oil painting to colour studies and painted glass carvings, in which she use distortion, reflection and colour interaction to play with meaning and perception.


Art Clubs for Primary Schools

Ruth's Drawing Clubs provides a fun, pro-active environment for children to develop their love of drawing. Each session has a different technical focus and the children explore a range of media. Children are then encouraged to give their own individual responses. At the end of the term, they proudly take their sketchbook home.
