This week's Team member introduction

We're pleased to introduce Ruth of As The Crow Flies!

Here is what Ruth has to say on her Etsy Shop About Page:  "As the Crow Flies. Not so common folk art. Self-taught Folk Artist, Ruth Lorentzen has been professionally designing, producing and selling her art for over forty years. In 1972, she started her own commercial art business, which consisted of, but was not limited to, sign painting, illustrating, and designing logos. Eventually, Ruth phased out the commercial end of the business and began developing individualized pieces, focusing her talents on designing and creating. Ruth participates in many retail and trade shows throughout the country. Her work has been published in “Signs of the Times” and “Early American Life” and has been displayed in the American Folk Art Museum in New York. Ruth lives in Connecticut with her husband, two daughters, son-in-law
 and her three granddaughters."
