Greetings Cards Prints and Steel Sculptures

RUTH MOLLOY is an established artist and designer based in Bristol. Her previous career as a graphic designer influences her current work in steel. As an extension of her paintings and print work, Ruth has developed a unique range of designs using laser cut mild steel. Larger pieces are currently underway and will be on display in 2018. The patina on each work is applied by hand and requires quite a few layers of various mediums to stop the steel rusting underneath . This makes each piece unique as it is very hard to control the oxidisation process to create the rusted patina, there is always anticipation when the process is left to develop overnight.
Ruth's smaller pieces are powder coated locally including her colourful sparrows and her Hare and Bay tea light candle holders.

PAINTING
Ruth started painting when she left HTV in Bristol in 2005, and it is a very important part of her creative process. It informs all her other work and opens her mind to new ideas and designs, while continuing to explore composition, colour and texture.

CARDS
Ruth has been supplying cards to shops and galleries since 2012. She produces a beautiful range of contemporary art as limited edition giclee prints. Her cards depict various themes from swallows to leaping hares in bold bright colours. She also has an artists range of art greetings cards depicting images from her paintings inspired by the West of Ireland and the UK coastline.
The full range can be used as birthday, seasonal and special occasion cards.
