The work of artist printmaker Ruth McDonald reflects her interest in her local woodland landscape and the sea illuminated by failing light and the moon and exposing the traces left by past inhabitants. Preferred sites are constantly revisited, re-worked and re-ordered with her explorations investigating beyond the evident as she seeks to reveal images as ciphers and signs of the unknown.
Ruth McDonald’s background in textiles and guild membership of RIBA has informed her progression to an MA in Fine Art. Since graduating she has developed her practice and become a member of United Society of Artists. Ruth works from her studio in Boughton under Blean and The Print Block, Whitstable. She has exhibited extensively, both in the UK and abroad, most recently at Bankside Gallery, London, The Mall Galleries, Beaney Canterbury and as part of East Kent Open Houses.
