Faculty: Ruth Ann Pearce
Ruth Ann Pearce as a child, often found herself drawing on her parents' walls. This fondness of the arts quickly prompted classes in both traditional and contemporary art techniques and ways of thinking. Always longing to improve her skills in various mediums, she began in the woodshop alongside her father. From there, cartooning, illustration and fine art seemed to be the natural progression. Ruth Ann then focused on traditional methods of drawing and painting at OCAD, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Inspired by the character of the land and its inhabitants, she creates both fine art and illustration.
