RUTH SCHIFFER

 

Deceased April 2010

Ruth Schiffer’s artistic journey is both distinguished and inspired.  Long renowned as both a painter and papermaker, in her eighth decade, she has taken her creativity to the computer and is using that process as her brush. Her medium these days is the camera and in her “playing with photography” she is able to “paint” wonderful abstract images through the computer.
