My name is Ruth, I live in Northern California and was born and raised in VENICE, CA. I started out as an oil painter that has evolved into a filmmaker, creating multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect identity and the value of people to their community.

The public plays a vital role in the outcome of my work,

taking a journey with me that can last up to two years. I produce multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement.

“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

“I relate to the wolf because of its strength, speed, and because me and my brothers were raised like a wolf pack in Dogtown”

“My strength comes from remembering who I was as a little girl growing up in Venice, Ca..  Having lived a less then perfect childhood I found that my innocence made me brave and strong. She is my hero”
