Arts Derbyshire


Art from Ruth Gray

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well! I am glad that we may be cooling down a bit as I am a lady of a certain age now, I prefer the cooler weather! That certain age is 50! I have celebrated for the last month by going away to Norfolk and St Ives as well as some festivals to be honest the party keeps on going!

For the last few months, I have had the pleasure of painting a few commissions so it may seem like I fell off the face of the earth, but I haven’t it’s just they are incredibly special commissions personal to the owners and you can see them soon in print form at Cafe Impromptu  14 Church St, Ashbourne, Derbyshire DE6 1AE, Opening hours: Tuesday to Saturday 08:30 – 16:30. Closed Sunday and Monday.

I have had new prints and cards printed, including this one which the original was very popular and sold on its first outing:
