Ruth trained at Charles H Cecil Studios in Florence, a fine art school modeled on the ateliers of the 19th Century Paris. There, over a period of three years, she studied portrait and figurative drawing and sculpting using the sight-size technique. Once back in the UK she opened her studio in Ely and began accepting portrait commissions in both charcoal and clay. During this period she was also appointed Artist in Residence at King's School, Ely, and began to teach. To better understand the processes and practicalities of lost wax casting for bronze, Ruth worked part time in an artists' foundry and used this technical knowledge to inform her own work in bronze. More recently, attracted by the different visual challenges it presents, Ruth has spent most of her time painting in oil, returning to Florence to develop her painting technique at studio Santo Spirito in May 2009 and again for three months at the begining of 2010.
