Ruth Farrelly studied at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, Holborn (now Central St. Martins) and then trained as a teacher, and for many years taught adult education classes in Berkshire. She studied printmaking at South Hill Park, and also in France for two years. Member of the Reading Guild of Artists since 1973.
A friend and fellow RGA member Jean Aust remembered; “She was the most instinctive artist for line, composition, and colour that I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside. Ruth was a real asset to the RGA by regularly offering her professional creations for exhibition and for the years she spent on the RGA Council.”
