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.

“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”
“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”
“You are turning being a member of our town into an art. I can’t wait to see the progress and participate in BELONGING. This is one of my favorite ways of belonging here!!
