A few friends and I spent a couple of hours doing a creative textural art workshop with Ruby Purple at my home last week. It was such fun, every one loved it. We loved the creative freedom of expressive flow. With no experience in any of these mediums I gained a wealth of knowledge and new skills. It was fun too! Jeannine "Your work is beautifully honest, gritty and real! Keep pushing and breaking through boundaries" Chantel - Paper Bou "Most impressed with your work, I love your latest designs they are beautiful" Julie "I like the way she creates with space and that she has a message, Preservation of our Environment" Rob "My painting is lovely! Just arrived and done by the very talented and beautiful hearted Ruby Purple. She has some amazing pieces and does wearable art as well. I have one of her lovely scarves too." Miriam "Ruby Purple's art allows you to participate, it's meaningful" Dave "Her work is engaging, alluring, different, I like that, it's a bit like her" Ruth "I find her works slightly meditative, I can look and just drift" Sandy
"Ruby Purple really likes sharing what she knows. She's happy to explain things so that I can understand easily" Doris "She's such an inspiration!" Tricia "Love how you say you're on an adventure, looks exciting, all looks great!" Val "I love your work Ruby and you're such a beautiful soul' Miranda
