Ruthie Lord has never stopped drawing from the day she could hold a pencil. Having trained as an art teacher, specialising in working with excluded children, her teaching career was cut short when illness struck. Ruthie's healing journey was enhanced by embracing her creativity. Over the years, Ruthie has followed her dreams, growing in entrepreneurship selling her award winning rag dolls and pet portraits. In 2020, wanting to share the healing nature of colour, creativity and mindfulness, she has launched her first (of many) colouring books. Ruthie lives in rural Leicestershire with her husband, two teenagers, a fluffy dog and a giant rabbit.
