Born in the Netherlands, Ruby Reichardt moved to New York in 1984 to begin her journey as an artist. After attending Syracuse University and pursuing an MFA in Illustration and Design, Ruby dedicated herself to her art career. Her prowess does not lie with just one style of art; rather she works in a variety of mediums including acrylic, oil, pastel, and collage. Ruby draws inspiration from the environment coupled with her reflection of the human experience and everything it entails—creation, change, joy, loss, dreams, and the passage of time. Each of her pieces captures a unique story, place, or memory with recurring patterns, textures, colors, and images.
