Ruth has been working and living in Surrey since graduating with a BA Honors in Fine Art at Cardiff University 25 years ago.
Ruth’s love for working and helping others to benefit therapeutically from a creative practice has led Ruth to develop a career in the Arts and Disability field and she has gained much experience in working with a wide range of adults and children with special needs.
Ruth set up Sculpt it with Holly Rampling 20 years ago and she has continued to run Sculpt it – a community art reach company and charitable arm supporting and teaching 100’s of schools, Day Centres, Arts Centres and Public Art Community Projects.
Ruth has always been an artist, designer and maker and her work has evolved over the years, from ceramics, willow, mosaics to stone and wood. She is a well established female wood sculptor in Surrey and undertakes large commissions to small art works.
Ruth is known for her large scale chainsaw sculptures and benches, dotted about Surrey and the southern counties. Ruth still undertakes special commissions but she has also been developing an affordable collection of Wood Wall Art that she displays in Galleries and sells in local National Trust sites and Watts Gallery as well as The Blue Bramble Gallery in St Ives and NISSIM London.
