Ruth Manning’s Statement
Painting watercolors and weaving tapestries are two very interconnected techniques. I often draw inspiration for shapes in my tapestries while painting and discover ideas for color blending while weaving. Either way my subjects are narrative and emerge from the stories of my past or ones I create from my present surroundings. My intent is to draw you in and leave you wondering what those stories might be.
