Contemporary Art
Ruth Killoran


I am inspired to create from strong human emotions. I feel passionately that we are all connected on some level and we need each other, not just to survive but to thrive.

My emotions drive me whether I am painting or sculpting. I seldom have a plan, letting my subconscious take over and I am constantly experimenting and learning with the medium being used.

My work comes from a place of love and compassion.

I am trying to visually communicate the turmoil I feel when I witness how we behave and the choices we make

I’d like to provoke dialogue within yourself……..

Why can’t we live in harmony?
Why can’t we treat each other, the environment and other species with respect?
What can I personally change right now that will make a difference?

We have choices, we are alive in this short moment, and I want to convey the joy of living at a time where we have the intelligence and potential to do so much good for the benefit of us all.

Being compassionate is a universal principal.
Someone who is kind is kind to all things. That is why I am vegan.
