Ruth Ashford graduated with a B.A. Hons. Degree in Creative Arts from Newcastle Polytechnic (now Northumbria University).
She enjoys drawing and painting using line, mixed media and digital tools, often working in watercolour and occasionally with acrylics or oils.
More recently Ruth, who's from Ryton in Gateshead, has been experimenting with layering digital mark-making onto drawn and painted scenes.
Some of the works here are inspired by a sense of place, particularly Portobello near Edinburgh.
