Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Ruthia is a painter based in Toronto, with a special focus working towards abstracted landscapes. She specialized in painting and drawing at York University, also studying painting in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK. For her, the process of painting and growing in spiritual disciplines is intimately intertwined; what is learned in one realm informs the other. In addition to her studio practice she produces commissioned pieces. Her work can be found in private and public collections in North America, the UK and Japan.

Why is art important to you?
