Born in Zambia, raised there and in Northumberland, Ruth trained in fashion and built an award-winning interior designer business in Newcastle. Having worked and travelled in many countries across the globe, absorbing cultures, colours and the beauty of the natural world, she now works happily painting in oils, always from experience of the countryside she loves - the Northumbrian coast, Scotland, Canada, Italy and the very special Outer Hebrides.

Her work in the Hebrides has brought her considerable attention and during the pandemic she produced her first book - a sell-out - The Outer Hebrides Captured, in happy conjunction with the poet, Peter Rees. She exhibited on the Isle of Harris for the whole of June 2022, and will be exhibiting there again in 2024 and 2025.

But she also has an enthusiastic following for her paintings of her own Northumberland Coast as a result of exhibitions in the North-East. Ruth has regularly walked the Northumberland Coast with her husband Phil and a border collie - Skye who caught his last ball at the ripe age of 15, and now young Pip who shows a similar dedication and enjoyment. Painting the sky, seas and sands has been irresistible. Here are those walks and vistas, in all seasons and with all the moods of the sea and sky, for the delectation of other Northumbrians and Hebrideans who know and share that love of this amazing scenery – and perhaps to tempt others to discover our secrets. A new-ish Book, “Northumberland Captured” accompanies this collection.

As an artist, I have always been captivated by the beauty of nature and the wonders of the world. Through my art prints and books, I aim to share my passion for the natural world and take you on a journey to some of the most breathtaking landscapes on Earth.

Each piece in my collection is carefully crafted to capture the essence and spirit of the locations that inspire me. From the turquoise coastlines of Luskentyre, Isle of Harris to the serene beauty of the Northumberland Coast, every print tells a unique story and invites you to explore the wonders of these remarkable places.

What sets my art prints apart is their extremely limited edition nature. I believe that art should be cherished and appreciated, which is why I only produce a limited number of prints for each design. This not only ensures the exclusivity of your chosen piece but also adds value to your collection.

By bringing my art prints and books into your home, you are not only adding a touch of beauty to your space but also connecting with the natural world in a meaningful way. Studies have shown that exposure to nature and art can have a positive impact on our well-being, reducing stress and increasing feelings of happiness and tranquility.

When you purchase from my collection, you can be confident that you are investing in high-quality, professionally produced pieces. I work closely with trusted printing partners to ensure that each print is faithful to the original artwork, capturing every detail and nuance.

Thank you for joining me on this artistic journey. I hope that my art prints and books inspire you to explore the world around you, appreciate the beauty of nature, and bring a sense of tranquility and joy into your life.
