I am a painter, lover of life, and advocate for positive social change.
My name is Ruth Chase, I grew up in Venice, California.
Venice taught me that I could choose not to be afraid, and that dreams come true if you don’t give up.
For the past two years I have dedicated my time to the West of Lincoln Project, a series of paintings about Venice locals who’ve transformed experiences of adversity into valuable life wisdom.

I was so touched by your beautiful work, Ruth. The feeling in your studio and the people I met there made me tear up several times. You are doing good work in the world. Namaste
“I was going to be raised the Venice way, the same way my uncles were raised. I looked up to them. I was Venice Trece, you know V13”
“Her West of Lincoln painting series pays tribute to a population of people who shaped the history of an untamed community, while preserving their historic significance”
“What others often don’t understand about people who grew up in Venice during the late 70’s was that, in Venice, you had to be tough; hold your own on the street”
