Ruth trained as an illustrator and has been drawing most of her life. The often accidental marks that her beloved dip pen makes continue to fascinate her and she loves the spontaneity of using watercolours in a loose way.

Growing up in London, she has also spent time living in many other places, including Kuwait, where she fell in love with camels, which feature prominently in her work.

Her distinctive style has developed over the years and her drawings are always quirky and original. By capturing the interaction between characters in her drawings she leaves the viewer to create their own storyline. There is always an element of fun in her work.
