ARTIST • MOTHER • COMMUNITY ACTIVIST
Raised in VENICE, CA. I’m on a path that I never expected. Starting out as an oil painter that led to filmmaking, creating multi-media installations that include audio, social media, video, public art, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect identity and the value of people.
“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”
“Thank you my Venice Sister! You have a awakened a pride in me that I haven’t felt in a long time regarding our hometown of Venice”
“I had no idea that having a portrait portraying my life growing up in Venice would be such a powerful, healing and spiritual experience”
“Beautiful work Ruth! It’s so awesome that there are people like you that grew up in Venice and want to help share the history and stories of this place. I love Venice”
