Real deal Venice artist with great heart, skill, and representation in her artwork.
Definitely a dope and genuine artist.
Mike Bravo | Venice

Taking a class from Ruth is as much about embracing life as it is about learning to draw
She has this amazing way of meeting each student at their moment of need – be it technical or emotional – and grants permission to quiet our judgmental mind chatter. Besides providing drawing instruction, I feel Ruth nurtures my creative soul. She shows a genuine commitment to helping me find my path as an artist.

I know I can depend on Ruth’s input to help me understand new concepts and techniques and move to a more sophisticated level. 
I look forward to taking art classes with Ruth because I am always looking for a way to push my work beyond what I already do. 
– Barbara | Auburn

I have enjoyed many of Ruth’s classes and am so glad she is now making time to teach again.
Well versed in many different types of art from sketching, charcoal and paint, she’s encourages you how to find your own way of creating. Can’t wait to take another class.

Ruth is such a gifted and inspirational true artist and teacher!.
I am so blessed by her influence.
– Sherri Dauphinais |  Auburn

Of all my past painting teachers, Ruth is the best.
She knows materials, techniques, composition, color, and can inspire anyone, regardless of experience, to be an artist. Just when I was ready to “chuck it”, she offered a suggestion that made me want to continue…one never fails in her classes. I can’t wait to take another!
