Born in Zambia, raised there and in Northumberland, Ruth Bond trained in fashion and built an award-winning interior designer business in Newcastle. Having worked and travelled in many countries across the globe, absorbing cultures,coloursand the beauty of the natural world, she now works happily painting in oils, always from experience of the countryside she loves - the Northumbrian coast, Scotland, Canada, Italy and the very special Outer Hebrides.
“My seascapes try to emulate the power of the sea, but also all its moods – calm, storm, tranquil, changeable …and especially the light on sea and sand.”
Colour has always been the most important element of Ruth’s landscapes and seascapes and has made her work much loved and sought after. Her paintings are now collected world-wide.
