Ruth has been working and living in Surrey since graduating with a BA Honors in Fine Art at Cardiff University 25 years ago. Her love for working and helping others to benefit therapeutically from a creative practice has led Ruth to develop a career in community art. She runs Sculpt It – a community art outreach company and charitable arm supporting and teaching 100’s of schools, Day Centres, Arts Centres and Public Art Community Projects.

Ruth has always been an artist, designer and maker and her work has evolved over the years, from ceramics, willow, mosaics to stone and wood. She is a well established female wood sculptor in Surrey and undertakes large commissions to small art works.

Ruth is known for her large scale chainsaw sculptures and benches, dotted about Surrey and the southern counties.
