About Ruby

Emphasising the beauty in ordinary and overlooked everyday objects is
an important aspect in Ruby's practice. Taking inspiration from her
home life in Somerset, her previous works explored one of the most popular,
yet desensitised animals, chickens. Ruby's pieces express their unknown
beauty and importance as both a flock and as individual characters.
Taking inspiration from her research at Bath Spa University,
after studying 17th century still life, Ruby's practice has taken the form
of more abstract representation with symbolic references.
Through the exploration between oil painting and printmaking,
there is a focus on small details with the use of pattern.

My previous work studied domestic and factory chickens,
exploring their unacknowledged beauty and individual importance.
Following a commission I received for a Leatherback Turtle, I am
excited to begin a project bringing light to today's many endangered
species. Working from the IUCN Red List of threatened species, I am
gathering information from various zoos and organisations to guide my
paintings, and help raise awareness for each animal.
From animals as small as a snail and large as a whale, I hope this series
shows viewers a sense of beauty and importance that should never be lost.
I will be donating a percentage of the selling price to charities that
help endagered species.
