'Ruth Gray is a landscape painter who has a faultless sense of composition, with an eye for including large areas of glowing colour and an aptitude to convey a convincing overall pervading almost ethereal atmosphere. Her strengths are her ability to capture the essence of a landscape. She is able to transport you by her portrayal of the scene within her paintings quite clearly, and you can really feel the emotion within them. Ruth works around similar geography’s conveying her knowledge of those areas within her paintings and describing that with determination and passion.'
