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.

“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

“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”

I had no idea that having a portrait portraying my life growing up in Venice would be such a powerful, healing and spiritual experience.

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.
