Hi! My name is Ruth and I’m an author, artist, designer, and creator of The Water Dragons picture book.

I do what I love which is art and literature, as well as other things like gardening and petting my rabbit Bandit. Being an author/artist is the only thing(s) that I have ever truly wanted to be.

Using a combination of hand and digital techniques I like to create colourful and unique designs from a variety of inspiration sources.

Finding my way

I left university with an MA in Digital Design and a BA in Interior Design, since then I’ve published my own children’s book and undertaken courses with The Make it in Design School and now I have a large bank of artwork in my personal portfolio.

So I keep writing, keep reading, keep drawing, petting rabbits and growing pretty flowers… it’s all I know how to do! Please check out my portfolio, if you would like access to the full range of artwork please contact me to request a temporary password.

Come join me across the interwebs!



Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon 🙂

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
