Ruth Zachary

Artist’s Statement

My Life Passion has always been to create images. Images are my first language, whether presented visually, or through language. Being Creative means being open to new ideas, aware of unusual visions, and excited about expressing them in new ways. Experimentation enables Creativity. The Process of creating art energizes me.

My Mission is to share my vision of a wondrous world and I hope, to Awaken Wonder in Your World.



Ruth Zachary is a versatile artist who offers original art and prints in several media and categories, often presented in a layered Montage style, with mythic references which express metaphoric impressions that collectively convey more than the individual parts.

Her Women's Heritage Series includes evocative images developed from a general theme, exploring various facets of a larger idea, until a series of related pieces result. Women's Heritage drawings, collages, photographs and paintings are available as Original pieces or limited edition Giclée Prints. Invite vision to transform your life with these inspirational images.

Ruth’s Mixed Media Collages combine painting, drawing, and photo images that compel  haunting reflections about life issues and human relationships. Expect to be Surprised!

Her Vintage Photo Montages include layered images of antique photos and heirlooms created from the artist's own family albums to reflect the ways the past weaves a tapestry with the present. These Montages are available as Original Photos or limited edition  Giclée  Prints. Embrace Art that transcends time. Contact the artist to custom design and preserve your own treasured family photos or heirlooms in an original Photo Montage.
