About Ruthii

ME
Hello, I am Ruthii! I am an oil artist as well as a wife and momma to four very young kiddos living in sunny Southern California. After a nine year hiatus away from art to figure out how to raise all these little copies we've been blessed with into functional human beings, I am finally back to brush and canvas. 

THE ART
I feel my artistic voice being pulled towards the maternal and childhood stories. No surprise there, right, with a mom of four? I am specifically finding myself drawn to childhood experiences. Further down the road I have dreams of larger paintings expressing my experience as a momma. Nature just flat out makes me happy, so that gets chosen frequently as a subject as well. Everyone loves a well executed rose or butterfly, after all. 

YOU
What you will be making possible is freedom. My primary focus at this phase of life is to raise my children. Without a standard job, artistically focused or not, I am limited with what I can accomplish on my own. What you will be making possible is the ability to create the art that I truly want to make, unfettered by obligation to others. Perhaps with time, and the proper equipment, I will be able to offer process videos to inspire others. There will also be opportunities to partake in helping me choose painting subjects. First access to limited edition prints will hopefully be in the future. As an art collector and appreciator myself, I feel that affordable access to art is important. Not everyone can afford originals, but prints are more attainable. There is a certain amount of "unknown" as to what this Patreon will evolve into over time, but I do anticipate accessibility to the art to be a factor in the long run. There is so much I want/need to accomplish as an artist, and maybe it starts here, with you. 

THE DREAM
The big picture dream is to fund the supplies and equipment to produce epic oil paintings and high quality prints. I need a camera and lights in order to capture good enough images for reproduction. I need the initial collateral to get the prints made. Like many creatives, I have that debilitating issue of perfectionism and not doing something if it can't be done properly. I also have ongoing paint and canvas needs, these run out after awhile! Ultimately, I want to be an artist that is able to contribute to our household while still being with my children in these formative years.
Goals
2% complete
A DSLR CAMERA & PRINTS

This is truly the biggest roadblock at this time in my being able to offer prints. I need a camera! I need a DSLR camera with enough oomph to capture the proper amount of detail required to generate a quality print. Reaching this goal would afford me the ability to purchase all the necessary equipment, AND I will run my first edition ever of reproduction prints!
