Hi! I'm Ruth Bleakley, an American book artist who lives in Florida. As a former military kid, I've also lived in Texas, New York and Massachusetts. Growing up, I spent 11 out of 18 years living overseas in Germany, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. So, basically a citizen of the world!
In 2016 I starred in a Japanese TV show about papermaking - you can read about that strange and wonderful journey here.
