I enjoy playing with the different colors of ink to see how they combine on the print to make new colors.
This is a continuation of the color mixing I learned while dyeing fabric, which I have brought to printmaking on paper. What is your advice to young artists and scientists who might be thinking about getting into art-science projects? [biocreativity]Thanks so much for taking the time to chat with us! [RP] I currently have five prints in the Bio Topo series.
I love being an artist and am interested in science through nature.
I am constantly amazed with ways nature presents beautiful designs and compositions.
So when I am in nature I am constantly observing plants, animals, and the environment around me.
Ruthie’s current work takes its cues from maps and geography.
[biocreativity] Ruthie, tell us a little bit about yourself and your background.
Very recently, I took a 2-day workshop at Southwest School of Art in San Antonio with visiting artist Aimee Lee about hanji, the Korean paper.
[biocreativity] Here on biocreativity, we’re always curious to know, what is it about nature that inspires or excites you?
