Printmaker Ruth Green makes limited edition screen prints from her Birmingham based studio. Trained originally in textile print and design, Ruth's work is bright and colourful, drawing on mid century design as a strong influence.
After graduating in 1994, Ruth worked as a freelance textile and pattern designer. Her work was used commercially by many familiar high street stores, and sold internationally at design shows.
In 2003, Ruth set up her print studio, and began exhibiting her work at art fairs and galleries. Many interesting commissions arrived, including a set of art prints for Ikea, a range of greetings cards for Woodmansterne, and note cards for Te Neues.
Ruth set up the Green Fox greetings card company in 2015, publishing a range cards from the print folio.
Ruth's association with Tate began in 2011, with the publication of her first book, 'Noisy Neighbours'. The book was inspired by a print of the same title. 'Stanley's Plan' was published in 2015, and 'Hedgehog Holidays' is due for release in 2017. Tate have also commissioned a range of toys and baby-wear which are sold alongside the books in their gallery stores.
