Ancient Landscape, original mixed media painting by Ruth Ander

Art & Contemporary Art

Ruth Ander

After completing a BA (Hons) in Illustration at the University of the West of England, Ruth has continued to evolve and hone her unique monoprint technique. She has continued to develop her work at Spike Print Studio in Bristol, making variable editions of dry-point etchings and relief prints.

Early in her career she was shortlisted for the Emerging Artist award at the Royal West of England Academy Open exhibition and won the Society of Graphic Fine Art’s Best Work in Colour. Ruth has gone on to have work exhibited in prestigious print exhibitions at the Atkinson Gallery in Somerset, The Shire Hall in Stafford and in open competitions at well-regarded venues such as the RWA.

In recent years I’ve taken part in a year long print residency at the University of the West of England’s print department and a group residency at Lizard Point in Cornwall resulting in exhibitions in London and Helston.

 

Ruth describes her inspiration as follows:

‘My inspiration is landscape, nature and light- often in North Somerset, the Severn Estuary, Dorset and Wiltshire- the places I know and love best, but also sometimes far away places I’ve travelled to. My motivation is to express the way I feel about these places- they move me and I want to move others.’
