"At the age of 11 Ruth Christensen lost both arms up to the elbow in an accident. In her youth she attended the arts and crafts school in Copenhagen. She then worked in an advertising agency as a graphic artist for a number of years. She found her own style in floral and Nordic Christmas motifs.
Aside from her job as a graphic artist, Ruth Christensen began mouth painting with an ambitious artistic language. Her colorful and expressive floral pieces, still lifes and landscapes are her preferred subjects. She also enjoys painting children, animals and the Christmas spirit in various techniques. She generally paints with watercolors or oil paints. Thanks to her numerous works, she has already been able to participate in numerous exhibitions."
