Ruth Ann Ficken

Ruth Ficken’s art takes inspiration from her background in photorealism, combined with a whimsical playfulness and nimble attention to detail. While she often incorporates a wide range of media, for these pieces she chose to focus solely on oil and watercolor. Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ruth earned her B.A. in Fine Art while also completing a Teaching Credential program and M.A. degree. Having raised a family, and retired from teaching high school art, she now calls Washington State home. Ruth now dedicates her energy to creating art that expresses her stories in paint and sculpture, invigorated by the daily challenges of the creative process.
