“My name is Ruth Grellier,I was born in the Forest of Dean in 1956, my first experience as an artist is after I retired from being a partner at BBR opticians. I have always been interested in art and craft and loved doing the window dressing at the optical practice so decided to try my hand at painting.”


“My influences were my father and grandfather who both took up painting in retirement.”


“I believe that being an artist is something one is born to do not learned at school. I’ve studied through practical experience, learning through trial and error. I work primarily in watercolour and acrylic from my studio at home.”



A selection of Ruth’s artworks can be found below.
