Ruth Alderton is an Illustrator based in Chelmsford, Essex. Last March she officially opened her shop Ruthdraws, producing a variety of Prints, Postcards, T-Shirts and is also open for custom commissions.

       Growing up surrounded by strong, independent women, she has found constant support, empowerment and inspiration from Feminism. Other sources of inspiration are found from fashion, as well as popular culture. Her quirky style is ultra-feminine meets 'new age' Pop Art, with a soft pastel colour scheme with contrasting thick black lines and a funny satirical edge. Her brand reflects her light-hearted attitude towards life, it has an emphasis on fun, sass, and a bit of attitude.

After one crazy year, Ruth is looking forward to developing her business further as well as using her skills to gain more experience in the Editorial Illustration Industry.
