Ruth Simpson BA (Hons) is a Suffolk based Contemporary Artist, living near Hessett in a stunning location surrounded by rolling hills and ancient coppice woods. These landscapes on Ruth's doorstep inspire her paintings and, working mostly in acrylic paints and inks, Ruth recreates nature's theatre and portrays the natural world. Many of her paintings show swathes of wildflowers that have self-seeded on field edges and in cottage gardens.
"My love of the British countryside inspires my artwork. The changing seasons of nature influence the transformation in colour, texture and light within my paintings."
Ruth studied at the University of Central Lancashire and upon graduation felt the pull back to East Anglia, where her love of painting developed and a career in Fine Art began. Over recent years Ruth's painting techniques have flourished and in a style of her own Ruth is able to capture drama and emotion of a scene.
Ruth is a member of the Bury Arts Society and the Iceni Botanical Artists.
