Ruby was born in Zimbabwe , 1990 and moved to South Africa in 1995. During her schooling she was debating between studying Architecture and studying Art. She chose Architecture in the hope that she would be able to work on her Art later on. She graduated from WITS in 2012 with a Bachelor of Architectural studies (BAS) and there after worked as an Architectural intern for two years.
In 2015 she decided to pursue her Art career full time and is now based in Newtown at the Assemblage. Her artworks depict people in order to highlight emotions and social issues.
MY ARTWORK IS FOR SALE BUT PEOPLE ARE NOT.
There are an estimated 35.8 million people Trafficked worldwide. This is one of the largest social issue we are currently facing. And as an Artist I believe it is our responsibility to highlight social issues and be a fundamental part of social change. I paint people to represent victims emotions. The images of people emerging from the darkness illustrates a victims desire to get out of their situation.
