Hard to believe she’s not locked up somewhere, but Ruth remains on the loose and is determined to take full advantage of the situation. She writes stories, paints pictures, plays the flute and acts silly.
Ruth Andrews began her artistic career as a filmmaker. Since then she has worked as a lifeguard, author, waitress, gifted education teacher, singer, photographer, actor, development director, theater director, executive director, taxi driver, infant swim instructor, comic book artist,
mediator, facilitator and playwright. She has a Masters in Conflict Resolution from Antioch University.
In 1974, Ruth’s experimental film Incumbent Mama was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival. One of her favorite pieces,
“Suspended Forest”, is an installation featuring hundreds of sticks. In 2010 Ruth designed and painted
Sanctuary and Deliverance, a 3,000 square foot mural funded by the Michigan Humanities Council. She is the mother of three and grandmother of four. She lives with
one sculptor, two zebra finches, three feral cats and four parakeets in Cassopolis, MI.
