Thank you for your interest in the West of Lincoln Project. Only one person is chosen per year to be painted for a featured portrait.  If you submit someone then you will receive an email as confirmation within 5 days. I keep all submissions for future consideration.

You can follow this project on Facebook Group page to see weekly updates. I am also on Instagram, Twitter and have a monthly newsletter.


About the Author Ruth Chase

My work documents the human spirit and the powerful insights that allow people to find a sense of belonging within their community. 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. Self-aware subjects with strong belief systems fascinate me and draw me in.
