More about Ruth
Ruth studied Fine Art, specialising in sculpture and over the years has shifted to painting and illustration in her work. Paper cutting has come more recently and has initiated a wide range of commissioned and private work.

For Ruth the intrigue of a paper cut is in starting with a blank paper and carefully, intricately removing bits of it to make a picture. She starts with a minimum of material and rather than adding and adding pencil, pen, ink, paint, she carefully cuts into the sheet by hand, extracting an image from exploiting positive and negative space.

The alphabets are a sorting activity; a means of inclusion and exclusion (and forcing variety). Just as deciding what to cut away and what to leave are intrinsic to making these images work. Ruth lives and works in the heart of the beautiful Norwich Lanes in Norfolk
