Ruth Mayer describes herself as “an artist by birth.” Over her 55 year career, she has painted hundreds of works that show incredible diversity that is difficult to imagine coming from one single artist. Her work ranges from sports, such as golf, baseball, football, horse racing, and sailing, to yachts and harbors, regional scenes, portraits, families, imaginary scenes, dragons, damsels, homes, floral, gardens, seascapes, landscapes, forests, and cityscapes. Ruth Mayer’s style of painting also varies between surrealism, realism, abstract, and impressionism and her Master's Degree in Art History has aided her endless imagination. Even though Ruth’s artwork has a wide assortment, the entire body of Ruth's work is tied by her unique style.
Ruth Mayer has a few unique trademarks. She tends to she paints herself in her paintings, occasionally in an obvious place or sometimes you can find a hidden profile in a rock cliff or among flowers. She also enjoys painting subliminal images like a natural event occurring in an unsuspecting place. Today Ruth is still creating new images at home in her California studio.
