My name is Ruth, I live in Northern California and was born and raised in VENICE, CA. I started out as an oil painter and have evolved into an artist who creates 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 will be shown at the 2018 Nevada City Film Festival COMING SOON 

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”

“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!”
Eddie Hadvina

“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”

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

“I relate to the wolf because of its strength, speed, and because me and my brothers were raised like a wolf pack in Dogtown”
