Chol Associate Artist
Ruth is a multi-disciplinary artist, based in West Yorkshire, who is inspired by the joy of day-to-day life. This could take the shape of any form of visual art, from installations in public spaces to drawing or printing books. Over the last 15 years, Ruth has discovered working in collaboration makes the most interesting work - with people who do, and those who don’t, consider themselves to be artists.
Since becoming part of the Chol team, Ruth has honed her skills in children’s illustration, bringing young people’s ideas to life during countless workshops and in several publications. The clarity of vision and strong direction of young people makes for content that is at the center of her vibrant and wildly imaginative illustrations.
Ruth moved to Yorkshire in 2004 to study Fine Art for Design at Batley School of Art and Design and has gone on to participate in the inaugural Northern Faculty of Socially Engaged Art. She has worked for Amelia’s Magazine, Barnardo’s, Woven Festival, Artychoke, Playful Anywhere and the Children’s Art School to name a few.
