Growing up on a small west-central Minnesota dairy farm, Ruth Hanson was surrounded by trees, lakes, crops, hills, animals and a wonderful, devoutly Christian family. I find comfort and enjoyment in these things.

While receiving a degree in Art Ed., she was employed as a sign painter. “I am so thankful for the education I received both in school and on that job. I have also had the privilege of taking workshops in watercolor from artist Danny Gamble, in calligraphy from Timothy Botts, and in oil pastel from Stephen Henning.”

Ruth realized that she really enjoyed the combination of words and pictures. “God gives each of us gifts. It is up to us to develop and use them for His glory. As it should, my faith has influenced my life - my interests and my art.”
