Ruth Hearson

Ruth often describes her job as “drawing baby toes.” Ruth graduated from Birmingham City University in 1996 with a First-Class degree in Visual Communication: Illustration and had such a lovely time she stayed on to do a Master’s degree. In 2018, Ruth was nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration. Actively involved with her church, Ruth helps to present a monthly service called “Everybody Sunday,” which creatively presents a biblical theme to an all-age congregation. You’ll find Ruth drawing and drinking tea at home in North Staffordshire, where she lives with her husband, two noisy teenage children and a sleepy cat called Orlando.
