With a skill refined by decades of daily painting, Ruthie Lowen’s ability to paint lush and luminous canvases resonates with her collectors, architects and interior designers.
Her current series of cactus flowers is a love letter to the southern desert landscape where she grew up. The oversized oil paintings joyously contrast the transitory nature of the brilliantly colored paper-thin blooms against rough background of the barbs and curved spines of cholla, hedgehog and barrel cactus. When she is not in her studio, Ruthie spends long days hiking and photographing, searching out unusual cactus in Texas and New Mexico to use as her inspiration.
Continually attending advanced seminars and working with professional artists to upgrade her skills, Ruthie intentionally seeks out wide ranging commissions from a 36-foot historic mural restoration to her current commission for a 31 piece series of large canvases of local cactus for The Three Crosses Regional Hospital under construction in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
Her versatility and talent have produced works for 5-star resorts, art galleries and private homes. Recently, she led a team of artists in creating a 3-story 25 by 78 foot mural that allowed her to challenge expectations and show her skills in bringing volunteer artists together to create a community work that established the boundaries of the Colorado Springs Creative District.
Ruthie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art /Education from The University of Texas at El Paso and a degree in Interior Design.
