I have over 20 years of design experience:
Something personal about me
Favorite things in life
Design and Computer Graphics
My first design experience was on a tiny Mac, and now I have been designing for over 25 years. I prefer print design - I leave web design to experts in that field.
Painting and Fine Art
Ever since I was little, I was busy drawing and painting. I went from pencil drawings to watercolor, then acrylics, and now I work mainly in oils. I love plein air painting, but recently fell in love with mixed media/collage. I also teach fine art classes for various topics at The Artists' Workshop in New Smyrna Beach. My fine art website is here at www.paintingsbyruth.com
I must have over 1000 books at home. My favorite genre is medieval mysteries. My favorites are The Name of the Rose, The Pillars of the Earth, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Discovering new cultures and peoples all over the world is always exciting, but my favorite is going back to Europe and especially Germany, where I was born and raised. Growing up, my parents have taken us as kids all over Europe and the Mediterranean for a mix of beach and culture. My husband caught the travel bug, too, and together we love to explore new vistas.
