Ruth began her art education at Harrogate College in 1989 and later went on to specialize in mosaics. Having studied the technique in Harrogate and later in Ravenna, Italy, Ruth has developed her skills as a mosaic artist over many years.
She is now based in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, where she works and runs workshops from her home studio.
Her work has developed with time and has been expressed in various ways with varying aspects of mosaic creation resonating with Ruth at different times. These have been in the techniques she uses, experimentation with materials to see how mediums work together, and the development of the designs themselves through the ever changing inspirations.
‘My work at the moment is exciting me with each piece I do. I am working in a more detailed style using much smaller pieces of tile thus allowing the finished mosaic to tell a bigger story, the design within a design’
Currently Ruth is specializing in larger commissions both private and public.Ruth has been a professional mosaic artist for several years now, and is based in Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire.
