About The Artist

Ruth always had a marker, pencil, brush, or pastel in her hand as a child.  Today, add to that, a large toolbox filled with scissors, x-acto knives and loads of sticky glue and matte mediums. 

 

Currently, she explores Collage and Mixed Media and the infinite ways of repurposing paper and imagery to compose a completely new narrative.  Ruth cuts, paints, deconstructs, texturizes, layers and rips it up, then finds the narrative or thread that makes it all fit together again.  

 

Ruth's work in Collage is widely recognized and published internationally in the UK, New York, Finland, and Estonia. She has exhibited work in the U.S., Scotland, Spain, Greece, Indonesia and here at home in Toronto, Canada.

She has contributed to Canada’s own KOLAJ magazine, and has work featured in The Canadian Women's Organization Signal For Help Campaign

 

Ruth's most recent achievement was exhibiting work for a curated Collage Exhibition at the University of Architecture in Portland, Oregon.
