Get to know the artist...

Ruby Sofrae is my artist name, a combination of my Great Grandmother's and my own...as is my given name. I'm an interdisciplinary artist and I find myself often wanting to bridge the gap that can occur between concept and craft. Usually, my work falls in the intersections of painting, sculpture, fiber and performance art.
My creative process is informed by my love of the human experience, of ecology, of stories and of truth. My artistic practice challenges me to let my creative process unfold without expectations, becoming keenly aware of life's constant need for creative problem solving. This trust in the process is how I begin to align life with art -- when I am diligent, there is no separation between the two.
