Ruth Shepherd

Down Town


Ruth Shepherd has lived in Grassington all her life. She paints from the heart and lets her brush lead her. Ruth is never totally sure which direction her work is going to go as she prefers to allow the painting to take control. Her subjects are varied, always something that excites, with its colour, line and shape. Ruth strives for freshness, painting in acrylics or oils, enjoying adding collage and pencil to her work, all she asks is that her pieces appear loose and alive.
