Ruth Salton, 1962, UK
Ruth Salton has been drawing and designing since childhood. Since leaving art college Ruth has worked as a graphic designer and illustrator in a wide range of styles.
She still takes commissioned projects working under her brand Joule Design Emporium, but in 2021 resumed her personal work starting with a series of Birmingham illustrations.
Ruth’s Birmingham project is something she had wanted to do for a long time. Over the past 20 years the City has gone through an amazing transformation and Ruth wanted
the colour and vibrancy of her illustrations to reflect this.
Her illustrations are a combination of reality and imagination resulting in stylised images influenced by a mix of her love of architecture and Deco art with a contemporary twist.
The Birmingham work is ongoing and further projects will follow in due course.
