Thanks so much for visiting my site and viewing my original paintings, one of a kind jewelry and hand painted vases.  Please click on the link I have provided above to view hundreds of my original works.  I welcome your comments. All my larger frames are hand cut and built from raw lumber by  me and hand cut matted by me. Paintings are sold as shown, however I am willing to discuss a different frame. No two paintings or frames are exactly alike.  Most of my oils are framed under glass for protection during public exhibits. I will gladly remove the glass if you choose to purchase the painting. Thanks for looking! You can find all my sold pieces shown on the highest numbered screens. Feel free to give any of my paintings a good home and may God bless my paintings!  Mini Auto Bio: Artist Ruth Roberts - I was born in Baltimore, Md., and started drawing very early in life and by age 7 I had accumulated a large portfolio of drawings inspired by newspaper ads for women’s clothing, cartoons and comics. When I was a student at Clayton State College I completed a self portrait in graphite from a black and white photo taken of me at Easter when I was 3 years old, titled, "Little Ruthie".  I also learned ceramic painting and made many pieces that I signed and dated through the years. I learned crochet and made many pieces of clothing, afghans and bedspreads. I became a professional singer in my 30’s, singing in many local clubs.  My favorite activity is dancing and my favorite sport is bull riding.  After giving my life to Christ I gave all my  vocal talents back to Him and am now the Director of the choir and Worship Leader at my church.  Much of my art  has been exhibited at Arts Clayton Gallery in Jonesboro, GA.
