Ruth Alexander was born in Aberdeen in 1971 and attended Glasgow University, graduating with an M.A. Hons in Theatre, Film and Television Studies in 1993. Having inherited a love of colour and textiles from her mother, she has been making fabric collages for over twenty years and has sold work at a number of craft fairs. She has lived in Pitlochry for five years, and has been inspired to make the pictures in this exhibition by the local scenery of her adopted hometown. Each piece is created and hand finished using recycled or vintage textiles and beads, and each is unique. This is Ruth’s fourth showing here at Pitlochry Festival Theatre.
