As I am sat on the sofa warm sunny rays are shining in on me, the first of the year and I thought a fresh burst of colour was well overdue on Creative Sketchbook. I was doing a spot of my usual inspiration seeking and I pleasantly found the colourful designs of Ruth Green. Ruth's work has a strong resemblance to folk art due to the bold and quirky shapes she incorporates into her screen prints. I love the retro feel to Ruth's designs and they have a strong childlike appeal.
It is clear to see Ruth is strongly influenced by the flora and fauna of our British countryside and its intriguing wildlife. Ruth skills are strongly rooted in printing after she studied Ba (Hons) in Printed Textiles as Liverpool John Moores University before completing a Ma in Printed Textiles at the University of Central England. Ruth now creates stunning colourful hand screen prints, lino cuts and etchings for a wide range of well known clients.
