About the artist..
in 1961on California's beautiful Monterey Peninsula, Ruth was the fourth
of five children. Her youth was very fulfilling, with many family adventures
and numerous pets. Ruth's family was extremely creative and offered many
outlets for her artistic abilities. She was also inspired by the diverse
natural beauty of California's central coast. These elements may have
been what inspired her to start drawing and painting at an early age.
Ruth loved living and studying in coastal California, but was pulled inland towards ranching country, where she had room to raise her family and animals. In 1988 Ruth moved to the Salinas area were she lives today with her husband Pete (an avid team roper), their daughter Allison, dogs, horses, sheep and a guinea pig.
Whether at home, at a rodeo, or at a friend's ranch, Ruth never lacks
for inspiration or subject matter. It may be a situation, a pose, or even
a gesture that sparks her interest.
The execution and technique of her pencil drawings is very important to
her, but her main goal is to create a vision the viewer can relate to.
With humor and sensitivity Ruth invites you to share a moment in the life
of the rural American.
