About Ruth
British illustrator Ruth Palmer has a colorful, painterly style that immediately draws the eye, and her work’s traditional feel makes it ideal in editorial, packaging and children’s books projects. There’s a sense of adventure and narrative in everything she paints, often with a 1950s feel to catch the imagination.
