Meet the artist & maker

Jo trained in Fine Art and developed her creative practices alongside her extensive teaching career. Fascinated by wildlife but a lifelong city dweller she is inspired by elements of both worlds – the birds we see sharing our urban lives and those in more rural settings.
Her work has been shown in many galleries both here and abroad and she is a regular exhibitor at the International Bird Fair in Rutland.

This is the first year that Jo Ruth has exhibited at York Open Studios
