Ruth Osborne is an artist based in rural County Down where she works from her home studio by the shores of Strangford Lough. Her creative practice has developed through many routes and combines her background in Art History, printmaking practice, interest in folklore and the textiles heritage, in particular the story of Linen, in Ireland. Ruth works primarily on locally sourced Irish Linen and creates unique works combining a range of printmaking techniques and hand-embellished painterly elements. Ruth is inspired by the local landscape and flora, the changing seasons, Irish Folklore and Celtic heritage. Her work is unique, delicate and instilled with a sense of peace and place. It aims to connect you with nature and to bring the outside in.
