Ruth lives in Christchurch and is passionate about painting, exploring, sharing and preserving New Zealand’s wilderness areas. As a skier and tramper she goes into the mountains and bush with a camera slung over her shoulder and sketching materials at hand. It thrills her when her paintings encourage people to visit the places she paints or reminds them of trips they have made.
All of her materials are fine artist quality. Although she is known for her New Zealand wilderness gems and iconic places painted in oils, she also has a strong interest in abstract art.
