Ruth is an Acrylic, Mixed media and Water colour artist. She formally taught children’s art and currently teaches art using colour through abstracts as an expressive release for wellness for all ages. The process of expressing one’s self artistically helps to release and reduce stress, as well as improve self-esteem. There is no artistic talent required to achieve peace through art. Therapeutic Art is a form of expression that uses many different mediums and a way to freely communicate and express one’s self without the use of words or language as communication. It’s also a great way to just relax and learn to paint. Ruth is active in the local community, a former Human Resource Manager and a graduate of Huron University with a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and Ethics and is currently completing a Master’s degree in psychotherapy.
