Ruth Taylor


I trained as a textile designer at West Surrey College of Art and Design. In recent years I have returned to painting, working in oil on canvas and board. I am inspired by expansive landscapes, particularly the South Downs, the marks made on land by man and the effects of the weather and seasons.
My paintings are built up with layers of paint which I apply with my fingers as well as a variety of tools, combs and sponges giving them depth and texture.

Commissions are welcomed and my studio can be visited by appointment.
