Ruby Banazi

Ruby studied Printed Textiles at Edinburgh College of Art where she developed her love of colour, shape, pattern, and mark making. After leaving Edinburgh and returning to London Ruby freelanced selling designs internationally for fabric and paper use whilst also temping for media companies to survive! 

Following a career in marketing for the Home Entertainment Film industry Ruby left London to settle in Suffolk to focus on her 3 children and embrace ‘the good life’, taking on an allotment which along with the stunning Suffolk landscape, has been a constant source of inspiration for Ruby’s art. 

Since moving to Suffolk Ruby has focused on revisiting, developing and relearning drawing, painting and printing skills. Ruby now has a studio at The Art Station in Saxmundham and is also one of Sudbourne Park Printmakers tutors teaching relief printing on workshops. 

Aside from printmaking, Ruby also enjoys the freedom of abstract painting where she often incorporates collage made from her prints. 

Being a strong believer that everyone is an artist, Ruby feels that the biggest excitement (and frustration at times) of art and printmaking is experimentation and being thrilled by happy accidents!
