Ruth Erskine, Photo-Artist

Born in Folkestone in the UK, I grew up in the craggy wilds of Northumberland in northern England and attended art schools in Canterbury and London, UK, prior to moving to Canada in the 1980's.

I was always fascinated by the natural world and the fundamentals of design: structure, colours, light, shadows, and composition.

My first attempt at building a website was in 2017 as a study of the fascinating cactus formations to be found in the deserts of the Southern United States and was called!


At one of my favourite haunts: Van Dusen Gardens, Vancouver

After a career spent in architecture and later in post-secondary education, I continued to add to my photo-artwork, revelling in the infinite range of natural subjects and plant formations to be found on my travels. 


I soon realized that I needed a new vehicle to house my growing range of photo-artworks - and thus, was born! You'll see that I have incorporated a section for desert plants on this site!

I have a special interest in the increasingly varied range of formats for printing and interior decoration, especially canvas and mural design, which provide many interesting opportunities for commercial use.
