Ruth Collett was born in Knutsford, Cheshire and moved to London to study at Wimbledon School of Art where she received a BA (Hons) in Technical Arts. She now lives in Hampshire where she can usually be found in her second home - the shed! It is here that she creates her fabulous sculptures and between projects also inserts hair for the world-famous Madam Tussauds.
Ruth is very much inspired by great artists such as Ron Mueck and Franz Messserschmidt and this led her to creating her humorous character heads where expression has an important role. She is very much looking forward to extending this unusual family tree!
