illustrations For Every Occasion

Ruth has illustrated all her life. Studying fashion illustration in college in the UK and life drawing in NYC.  Styles of particular popularity are her family portraits with her signature pen and pencil drawing.
Additionally Ruth has a love of the Pin Up girl style illustrations from her years studying the history of film and US lifestyle. These can be bought as a series of greeting cards or in some cases commissioned by friends and family for special occasions or invites.  Please contact for ready to order prints or special orders. 

Illustrator

Ruth Mac Gowan

Our ‘Bean an Ti (woman of the house in Irish) waiting for her farmer to come home’. Happens to be having a pint of Guinness in her hand and wears svelte backless aran sweater with her Louboutins.

Drawn from Ruth’s imagination in pen and pencil, Ruth combines her feel for fashion with a feel for Ireland in a seductive message of today’s Ireland.

Coordinates with Gonne Wilde neon crochet table wear & linen napkins.
