Kathy Ruck

Chester County artist Kathy Ruck's paintings are full of the color and crispness of a clear sunlit day. Her love of color and attention to detail brings realism to her watercolors that captures the viewer and draws them into the scene. The subject matter of Kathy's works varies, but with the common thread of wanting to bring joy to the viewer.

Having earned her degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, Kathy worked as an art director in an advertising agency. She later made the decision to pursue the fine arts and dedicated all her professional talents to painting. She studied watercolor with some of the area's finest artists.

Working out of her home studio in Landenberg, PA, Kathy paints the beauty of the surrounding areas of Chester County, PA and northern Delaware. She works primarily in watercolors, but also enjoys pastels, gouache, and tempera.

Kathy's original art and limited edition prints are currently available at local galleries; she also exhibits in juried art shows, having won several awards for her paintings. Private collectors and corporations own her paintings. She is a former president of the Delaware Foundation for the Visual Arts, and a member of Howard Pyle Studio Group.
