85 Ruth Holt

Portrait Artist

Exhibiting for the first time with Dorset Art Weeks, Ruth Holt is a portrait artist driven by the beauty of transient ‘moments of truth’. Her style is figurative and honest and simultaneously loose and exacting.

Having won an Art Scholarship to attend Truro school, Ruth then enjoyed a successful career as a classical musician. She continued to paint throughout her music career and whilst bringing up a young family. In 2017 Ruth returned to painting full time and was selected to exhibit at the Mall Galleries as a finalist for the prestigious Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize that year. This year she is proud to announce that one of her self portraits has been chosen for the upcoming Royal Society of Portrait Painters Annual Exhibition in May.

She paints to commission and for exhibition.
