Ruth is a multidisciplinary artist known for her layered paper artworks, as well as her abstract and landscape paintings. She began cutting paper as a teen, when she learned paper-cutting as a traditional Jewish folk-craft. Ruth established her practice designing ketubahs (Jewish wedding art), creating over 2,000 works for couples worldwide.
A Fulbright scholar with degrees in rhetoric and law, Ruth’s academic training informs her work in the studio to distill complexity into coherence. Her current work combines digital design, laser-cutting, and inkjet-printing to create incisively-layered paper artworks.
A DC native, Ruth lives and works in Maryland, recently returned to the area after twenty-five years, following lengthy sojourns in Berkeley, California and in Israel.
