New beginnings . . .

In 1993 a move to the beautiful wilds of Scotland changed my life forever, in so many ways. I began to paint the things that spoke to my heart, the stories I love; stories of folklore & faerietales, myth & magic, the stories Mother Nature has to tell, the stories of our heritage.

In 2011 i set up my “Mythweaver” Etsy store so called because I weave myths & stories into my paintings.

As a pictorial story teller, I use elements of symbology in my work, so that it carries a story buried beneath the surface for the viewer to unfurl. Our lives are enriched by symbols in the written & spoken word, images, & gestures; they can move us, inspire us, inform us and puzzle us; in faerie stories, with their hidden morals & warning, in the symbolic nature of our dreams.

I spend my time striving to create work that makes my heart sing. My hope is that you may experience even a little of the pleasure from my work as i felt when creating it.

Thank you for visiting my MythWeaver store.

I am Ruthie Redden an artist and illustrator inspired by the heather strewn hills and the ancient forests surrounding my home here in Dumfries and Galloway.

Through my research I explore folklore, history and tradition rooted in Scotland’s past, much of it on the brink of being lost. I work with these stories to make them accessible through my art.

As a pictorial storyteller, I use the narrative elements of folklore to evoke a connection to a time when we were intrinsically tied to the rhythms of Mother Nature and to inspire interest in our rich Scottish heritage.

I sell original paintings, prints, cards and sculptures.

If you have any queries please feel free to contact me.

Many thanks
