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.

BELONGING at the 2018 Nevada City Film Festival

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.

“What others often don’t understand about people who grew up in Venice during the late 70’s was that, in Venice, you had to be tough; hold your own on the street”

“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”

“The BELONGING project gives a voice and perspective of the Nisenan Indians, the Native Americans who were here for countless generations before the California gold rush. This project will help raise visibility and awareness of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe”

“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!”
