Artist and Therapist

Ruth is a mixed-media artist known for her Zentangle-inspired line drawing designs and ink wash paintings in vibrant colours. Ruth was born in Switzerland, moved to Australia in 1999, and now lives on the Mid-North Coast in New South Wales.

Her work is shaped by her years as a family therapist, using art and play to enhance well-being. She’s interested in the use of colour, its effect on body and mind, and decorative designs that embody harmony.
