Ruby Michelle Riego – Elk Grove, CA
Ruby Michelle is an American artist that graduated with her BFA from California State University of Sacramento with a concentration in drawing and painting. Her artwork has a childlike quality that is inspired by fairytales, Asian culture, folklore and children’s literature, while the subject matter is often a reflection of everyday life with a twist of fantasy and surrealism.
“I enjoy drawing human expression and the feelings and bonds we have with nature as well as each other. This series of illustrations called “Blankspace” is a collection of snapshots or moments captured in time and representing both an everyday reality as well as a surreal fantasy. “
