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.
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.
