ruthie paints from life and portraiture occupies the central place in her visual work, alongside detailed representations of every day objects in her stll life studies.
ruthie's photographic work is also concerned with the human form, and signs of its presence or absence, both in the form of human 'objects' and in the landscape. photography lends itself to such explorations as the photograph has intrinsically within it the reminder of lost time and lost moments.
