Ruth Saporito is a Toronto based artist working in Collage and Mixed Media.  

She enjoys using collage to explore the infinite ways of repurposing paper and imagery to compose a completely new narrative.  

Ruth is known to create moody vignettes taking the viewer through a mysterious synopsis and noire ambience, evoking a deep emotional curiosity, response and connection.  She loves the textural properties of layering paper and other mediums to create movement and depth. 

"The idea that you create a new narrative by 

altering and rearrangement imagery is 

incredibly powerful and creatively compelling"

 During her travels in 2022, she started exploring a new way of cutting paper, into what she has dubbed "paper peels".  

Her Paper Peel collection is inspired by a childhood memory of her grandmother peeling fruit.

Ruth's work has been published internationally in the UK, New York, Finland, and Estonia.  She was a contributor to Canada’s 

KOLAJ magazine Special World Collage Day 2020 Editi​on, and most recently one of her collages was featured by The Canadian Women's Organization for the Signal For Help Campaign.

Ruth has exhibited her work in the U.S.A,  Scotland, Spain, Indonesia and at various venues throughout Toronto, Canada and is 

part of private and corporate collections around the globe.
