Ruth has a long history in English and European royal heritage.

A direct decsendent of Roman royalty and Tudor lawyer Sir Rafe Sadler (advisor to King Henry VIII), and relative of English romantic poet Sir Percy Byshhe Shelley, Ruth was born in to a large Georgian townhouse with ballroom and horse stables in the 'antique capital of England', Derbyshire.

Her grandfather taught Ruth classical oil painting from the age of four and later, portraiture, while her father, an antique collector and restorer, renovated the Georgian family home with an unusual level of care and attention to the details of classical renovation. 

During her studies (M.A. Fine Art), she lived in a Derbyshire Mansion with a collective of intellectuals, artists and concert musicians. This social and influence brought to Ruth's personal work a sense of rhythm, poetry, beauty, and an appreciation of heritage and the arts. These unusual influences inform ruth's painterly and careful approach to image making today.

Ruth's interest in fashion came after graduating and she now lives and works in West Yorkshire .

She was invited to be an ambassador for The Princes Trust, and has been invited to speak at V.I.P events nationwide about working creatively in fashion. Here are some photographs of  people she has met and worked alongside in her work with the trust.
