Ruth LaGue is an artist who finds inspiration in the vastness and beauty of the natural world. Her work is a reflection of a profound connection to the environment and a desire to capture the fleeting and transcendent moments that are experienced within it.

LaGue's artistic practice is characterized by going beyond the subject matter; she is particularly drawn to the interplay between colors and textures in defining spaces. Her style strives for simplicity and visual economy while allowing the flow of her creative instincts to capture scenes as a whole, bordering on abstract rather than noting the realities of individual objects. Her work is a testament to the power of art to transcend the limitations of language. 

Ruth began her career as a graphic designer and creative director with a focus on user-centric design. This practice helped to inform her belief that “less is more” and that concept carries over to build a strong foundation for her work.
