Born and raised in New York, Ruth Brown has been drawing, painting and creating for as long as she can remember. Always the 'class artist' growing up, she considers herself mostly self taught. Ruth attended the Art Students League in NYC where she studied and participated in the concourse shows becoming a lifetime member in 2004. Over the last 30 years much of Ruth's work is influenced and inspired by her life and travels in the music world via her husband, the musician and guitarist Dean Brown. Ruth has paintings featured on several albums, music related products and promotional materials, including the Grammy award winning record 'A Love Affair-The Music Of Ivan Lins'.
