Ru has been a visual artist and a writer her entire life. Although restricted by post polio and in a wheelchair, she majored in painting at Ohio State University and Berkley California in the late 60's. It was there she developed his vivid painterly style and her love affair with color.

Personal Statement

I am fascinated by the emotive qualities of color as well as the colorimetric quality of richly textured prose and poetry. I feel that the use of either or both can embue a work of art with a world of joy, sorrow and even humor. I continue to explore this world in my watercolor and arylic paintings, my poetry and my children's books. For more of my art and writings visit my website link below.
