The Ruby Purple Story
Ruby Purple's journey began as a gift of some art lessons from her husband a decade ago, although she's not sure he's so happy about that now with the walls of their home covered art! She's a creator and a collector. 'artists supporting artists' she says.
What's in a name
Ruby Purple 'pseudo' to disguise her real identity. Why? So when she first began the art journey she'd get honest open critique. She invited her family to attend her early exhibitions, ask their opinion, knowing they would give it freely, an not knowing it was her they were evaluating.
What an entertaining way of gaining insight into her arts practice. Now everyone knows her as Ruby Purple!
With her first exhibition taking place in Newstead in 2011, she's has developed her brand through social media, exhibitions, workshops, wearable art and traveling the globe. She is mentor to some, and an inspiration for others, loves sharing what she knows and connecting people.

A couple of words from Ruby Purple the creator, 'I see through eyes filled with intrigue and captivation, art is part of me part of my being, I will always create!'
