Ruth Purdy – Photographer & Visual Artist

Communal Nature by Ruth Purdy

I have worked in a wide variety of compulsory and non-compulsory education settings with young people. I help participants and staff design to carry out their own projects; from design, practical and exhibition and evaluation. I hope that this process allows individuals to learn new skills, share ideas, speak up and shine. My work uses play and models that look at the world in a new ways. I often illustrate text and use photography to help describe the edge between the real and unreal.

My current practice involves model making and photography. However I am confident with most Arts and Crafts practices. Recent projects have included: 

  • Mosaic mural
  • Collograph print
  • Digital manipulation
  • Still life drawing and painting
  • Felt Making
  • Sensory Books
  • Cyanotype
