Artist member since 2019

Toronto, Ontario

Ruthia's painting process involves looking at nature and finding patterns whether in shadows, placement of branches, clusters of leaves or dappled sunlight. For her, the process of painting and growing in awareness is intimately intertwined; there is a constant dance trying to find a balance of the tangible and intangible -realism and abstraction. She works from her home studio space where she lives with her husband and two children.

Why is art important to you?

Because it teaches me to let go of control, becoming aware of the flow an image or brushstroke, which inevitably leads to more interesting work than my brain could've planned.
