Spotlight Artist Oct 2017: Ruby DeLoach

Artist Statement:

Artful pursuits allow me to imagine a place like Hummingbird Paradise, or Coi Fish, accepted into the SC State Fair 2017 Fine Arts Exhibit.

I enjoy salvaging old lamp parts to use to design new lamps. The small ones are called Cookbook Lamps, as they have kitchen themes and fit under the kitchen counter to make reading cookbook recipes easier. Lamps can be found at the Little Antique Store on the Corner in Little Mountain.

I write and illustrate children's nonfiction science books available at Learning Express in Lexington, Books on Main and Gallery 101 in Newberry, Palmetto Fine Arts and Art Can Studio & Gallery in Chapin. My monthly

Growing Little Green Thumbs column can be found at I enjoy author/illustrator visits to elementary schools. I am thankful that God made me a very busy bee and I continue to be amazed and engaged in plein aire painting. This is the latest piece produced in Winsborough during Oil Painters of America organized by Barbara Yongue with Mark Horton, workshop instructor.

Ruby DeLoach is recognized by the Crooked Creek Art League as the Spotlight Artist of the Month for October 2017.
