Kathy Ruck
“With an artist’s vision, some pigment and paper, I strive to create paintings that relax the mind and bring  joy to the viewer. I work primarily in watercolors, but also enjoy pastels. The beauty of Chester County is my main inspiration. I am a member of the Howard Pyle Studio Group, PWCS and DFVA. I exhibit in many juried exhibitions and my work can be found in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.”

Kathy paints the beauty of the surrounding areas of Chester County, PA and northern Delaware. She paints on the traditional cotton watercolor paper and also on new surfaces, including clay board and watercolor ground, which allow the paintings to be varnished and framed without the glass, yet still capture the luminosity of watercolor.

 “I believe that in today’s hectic world it’s important to fill your home with art that will relax your mind and lift your spirits,” says the artist.

Kathy has won several awards for her paintings. She has been commissioned to create paintings for corporations and institutions including DuPont, PNC Bank, Wilmington University and the Wilmington Flower Market.  She is a former president of the Delaware Foundation for the Visual Arts, and a member of the Howard Pyle Studio Group and the Philadelphia Watercolor Society. 

She is represented by Hardcastle Gallery in Centerville, DE.
