2013 Featured Artist
As a professional art photographer, Ruth Burke has many publishing credits to her name. Her images have been featured in national and regional books and magazines such as Conde Nast Traveler, Texas Highways, Metropolitan Home, Bay Runner and Gulfscapes. Currently, she self-publishes many of her images in unique editions on canvas and rag paper.
Ruth developed her sea shell photography series while playing with her three daughters on the beach. She loved swimming in the ocean and spending time at the beach. She often entertained her children by taking them and their friends to the beach. She always brought her camera to photograph the children building sand castles and playing.
