Ruth Connolly is a printed textile designer based in Reigate, Surrey. Throughout her textile design degree at Loughborough University, where she specialised in Print, she became passionate about creating collections full of of juxtaposition. This was exicuted by combining hand drawn and painted pieces and manipulated photography within the same collection and printing both digitally and by hand. This has resulted in the completion of innovative collections that capture the unusual beauty found in the visual landscapes from across the world that inspire the projects.
Her graduate print collection allowed her to study and research in detail settings that are truly unique and personal to her: Dungeness in Kent, Tresco on the Scilly Isles and Cove Hithe in Suffolk. The collection depicts the outstanding beauty of each landscape combing landscape photography and innovative drawing and painting techniques.
