Ruthie Redden is an artist and illustrator living and working in Dumfries and Galloway, South-West Scotland. She has long been inspired by the heather strewn hills, glorious beaches and ancient woodlands that surround her home.
Through her paintings Ruthie explores Scottish folklore, history and tradition, much on the brink of being lost. She works narrative elements of folklore into her art to evoke connections to our rich Scottish heritage and to a time when we were intrinsically tied to the rhythms of Mother Nature. Ruthie is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
Nip Nebs was nominated for Bairns’ Book o the Year at the Scots Language Awards 2019.
Ruthie has illustrated two books for Curly Tale Books:
