Biography

Ruthia is a painter based in Toronto. She specialized in painting and drawing at York University (BFA, 2000), also studying painting in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK (1999). She continued her studies at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto (Master of Theological Studies, 2009). Her painting looks towards abstraction using patterns found in nature; whether in shadows, placement of branches, clusters of leaves or dappled sunlight. For her, the process of painting and growing in spiritual disciplines is intimately intertwined.
