Ruth is a self-taught artist specializing in painting landscapes with gouache. In her work you’ll find both realistic landscapes plus ones with a hint of magic; a nod to her deep love of fairy tales and adventure stories. Her creative journey began with explorations in other mediums, including charcoal, oils and watercolor before she discovered and fell in love with gouache. She found that gouache provided the ideal combination of bold, opaque color with the flexibility of a water-soluble medium; perfect for the modern artist! She now spends her time teaching others about this quirky medium through an online painting school, and with her book: Creative Gouache.
