Ruth was born and raised in Otahuhu and this has served to infuse my work with the colour and diversity indicative of the immigrant and Pacific culture that permeated my childhood and teens. She studied painting and printmaking at MIT’s School of Visual Arts and then went on to complete an MA in Art and Design at AUT in 2002. For the last 20 years Ruth has lived and practiced my art in Dairy Flat surrounded by native bush.
Recently Ruth and her husband moved to Helensville attracted by the vibrant arts culture that the area seems to nurture.
She work in oils, acrylics and spray paint to create abstract paintings and prints.
Ruth’s studio is in the Old Arts Centre behind the Corner Butchery building on Commercial rd beside ARTSTOP. She will be open for the entire Labour Weekend between 10am to 4pm October 26th-28th 2019.
