Born and raised in Delaware County, PA Ruth grew up visiting Bucks County from childhood.
In 1986 Ruth and her husband Steve relocated to Bucks County where they still reside.

Ruth's passion for photography began in late Summer of 2003. While on the long drives home from her job in Princeton, NJ she decided to enjoy the beautiful rural scenes Bucks County had to offer and photograph them along the way.

By November of 2003 she began entering her photographs to online photography contests. The first photo entered won Photo of the Week. That same year, her second photograph entered at Betterphoto.com achieved monthly finalists of over 3000 entries from other photographers. This gave her the incentive to continue to learn more about the art of photography. Her passion for capturing scenes in the best light has lead her to focus on some of the most artistic areas of Bucks County, compiling images of the changing seasons. Often times Ruth returns daily looking to capture the perfect colors and light in order to create tranquil moods enjoyed by so many of her collectors.

Ruth is self taught and has learned from watching many of the exceptional photographers online. Ruth and her husband Steve and their 2 Cocker Spaniels now travel during vacations and some weekends looking for beautiful nature scenery along the East coast and as far North as Quebec Canada.
