Hi there!

My name is Ruth Jackson and this is a blog about my art. It’s my first blog and I am excited to “go public” with my art. My main purpose in creating this blog is to get some exposure on the art that I have been creating and to know if others could be as excited about it as I am.

A quick background on myself: I have always had a love for anything artistic. But it was in high school that I started honing my skills and developing a personal style and taste. Other than high school, one university elective, and a private class I am primarily self-taught. Google Images and Youtube have been my faithful instructors (how-to posts and videos, but mostly just examining other people’s art). I have struggled with having the desire to create but lacking the discipline and focus to really be productive. On January 18th 2014, however, I married a  man who has given a sense of stability to my life and over the course of the last year I have been able to put my creativity to work and see results I am pleased with.

So.. This blog might be a little slow to start until I get everything set up and figured out, but I hope to post sketches and paintings regularly because, well, that’s what this is all about!
