Beneath a photo of Ruth’s studio the article, in Ruth’s own words, describes her arrival at the Shipyard in 1986 and how her studio and her work have evolved since then. It includes a link to Ruth’s stunning website from which we took this photo.

Ruth explains: “[This series] caught my eye last year. It’s an intriguing way to look at work, from the inside out, through the lens of the studio. And it particularly drew me since I do feel that my studio and my work are part of the whole, and I’ve been starting to write more about this for my own website.”
