Welcome !

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. Don’t miss the August 5th Opening Reception at Venice Arts. Sign up for my newsletter or just say hi by clicking here.

“When I was a young kid I had hopes and dreams of success. However, I did not follow the path as planned. At the age of 31 I discovered myself learning from my mistakes, and was given a second chance! It turned my regrets into passionate achievements. Hope is never too late!”
Eddie Hadvina

“Growing up in Venice, I learned that we all make a choice in life – we choose where we want to “live” in our consciousness, and how we want to spend our precious days on this earth”

Rhonda Elwell

Your project is bringing people together and caring about their stories, it is truly the spirit of old Venice and community.

“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”
