Ruth Dent wearing What is held within Silk Scarf

Hello and welcome,

Using colour and gesture to express my emotional response to music, literature and nature, I create bold abstracts for you to collect as paintings, prints or silk scarves.

When broken grids appeared unexpectedly in a painting, they captured my imagination. Now there’s a new collection of paintings, prints and scarves. ‘Visible, Invisible, Veiled’ celebrates life, spirit and nature – in particular trees, forests, the sun and moon.

My exploration has moved onwards to include pathways, the experience of walking the labyrinth at Chartres and the concepts of ‘mindfulness’, ‘otherness’ and ‘the turn’.
