Ruth Howard is an artist working in small scale in painting and ceramics. Howard’s minimalist paintings often portray a single object on a flat plane, while her sculptures depict wild animals or organic matter in abstract form. Her dedication to this theme has enabled her to refine her idiosyncratic, bold style to quirky levels of elegance and beauty. Ruth Howard has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 1998, and held her first solo show at Arts Project Australia in 2015. She has been included in numerous group exhibitions in Australia, Canada, Scotland and New Zealand.
