Born under African skies, Ruth Bond has worked and travelled in many countries across the globe, absorbing cultures, colours, textures and especially the beauty of the natural world.

Over the last 18 years the combination of these have inspired her design work (she’s an award-winning interior designer) and now the light and the subtle colours of the coasts of Northumberland and the Western Isles of Scotland infuse her paintings, with some of the most dramatic skies and strikingly beautiful beaches in the world. Ruth believes "that in order to paint I need to see and experience the places myself” .

Ruth is lucky to have a base in the picturesque and extremely popular village of Alnmouth, and regularly walks the coastal paths from Druridge Bay up to Holy Island with her Border Collie, Skye.
