Cover Artist Jennifer Rugge
Inside Arden October 2023
Considering herself an earth artist, Jennifer Rugge creates her art using organic materials and mixing paints and clay slips from natural minerals. Her work engages a presence of life from the land of our ancient ancestral roots in color and composition and with pictographs from early languages. Shown: “Whispers of Ochre,” earth paints with gold leaf over handmade papers on wood mixed media, 30 inches by 40 inches. The piece was awarded a 2023 Inside Publisher’s Award in the California State Fair Fine Arts Competition. Visit jenniferrugge.com.
