     Born and raised in Brooklyn, Ruth attended Brooklyn and City Colleges and earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from New York University.  She had a private psychotherapy practice in Manhattan for over 30 years, and at the same time was consistently involved with art.

     A former owner of Earthworks and Artisans, a ceramic art school and gallery on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, Ruth’s work can now be seen at the Flatiron Gallery in Peekskill NY.

     Her paintings and collages have been exhibited in many of  Westchester’s juried shows, including those at the Hammond Museum and the Northern Westchester Center for the Arts, and are also in many private collections.  She has had solo shows at the Katonah Library and elsewhere, and has been on the Advisory Board of the Katonah Museum Artists Association.

     Except for her raku pieces, her pottery is high-fired stoneware and porcelain.  Her poetry has been published in numerous journals and her book, IN THE BELLY OF THE MOON, is a collection of her poetry and artwork.

     Retired from her pspychotherapy practice, Ruth spends most of her time in Manhattan.  She has two grown daughters who live in New York City.
