My name is Ruth, I was born and raised in VENICE, CA

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.

“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”

Gloria Olivas Omar

“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

“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”

Leonard Duran

” I get goosebumps!! The West of Lincoln Project is truly AWESOME ! I love ALL the stories and people that make Venice so diverse, colorful and rich in spirit. I think this project is helping to heal hearts as well. Much, much love to you!”

Kristina Peterson

“I was so touched by your beautiful work on the West of Lincoln Project. 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”
