Ruby always seeks to capture the mood, atmosphere and that “fleeting magical moment” of her subject. Her affinity with nature is reflected in subjects from her country and bush landscapes through to her captivating seascapes.
Her enthusiasm to create and portray the “spirit” of her subjects is also reflected in her European landscapes. This is something that continually excites her to pursue her love of painting whether it is the Italian coastlines or the rugged beauty of Central Australia.
Throughout her career Ruby has participated in many exhibitions including solo and joint exhibitions as well as being a feature artist on many occasions. She has won many awards for all mediums, winning her first award at Orange Art Festival in 1982 (1st) in watercolour.
