Ruth Saunders

Ruth began painting, drawing, and writing creative nonfiction in early 2015 to reconnect with people and the world of nature after retirement from 30 years of university teaching. She has worked in a variety of media including oil pastel, oil, gouache, graphite, acrylic and mixed media. She enjoys painting and drawing botanicals, landscapes and interiors, as well as more whimsical creations. Her goal is to capture the emotional essence of the subject rather than to achieve a photo-realistic depiction.
