Ruth studied Fine Art in Birmingham, followed by an MA in Photography at Falmouth, where she was identified as one of the best MA students in the British Journal of Photography. She is a natural maker of artefacts, and following experimentation with a variety of crafts, drawing and painting, her work now focuses on model making, photography production and prints.
Her credits include book and album covers, and she has taught photography and art at all levels to all abilities. Her work in varied institutions has reinforced her interest in how mankind makes pictures and in sharing the skills, which give meaning to her life. She is currently self-employed in Cornwall, working as an artist in the community, exploring the intricate coastline around her home.
