A native of Fayetteville, Arkansas, Ruth earned a Home Economics degree from the University of Arkansas and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Oklahoma. She studied art in Montana, California, Alabama, and Colorado. She studied oil portraiture with Daniel E. Greene in his North Salem, New York studio. Ruth’s influences include the work of John Singer Sargent, Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O’Keeffe. A full-time painter residing in Colorado, Ruth is inspired by the grandeur of the nearby Rocky Mountains. She paints the western landscape in a magical style in which she perceives intensified hues, symbolic motifs and dramatic contrasts in her compositions. Two of Ruth’s large oil landscapes, Black Canyon of Gunnison and Cache de Poudre were included in the Creative Capital Exhibition at Denver International Airport from November 2010 through February 2011. Salmagundi Club New York exhibited Black Canyon of Gunnison by Soller in their Non-Members Show; and Alcove Books of Berkeley, CA published this painting in their book 2010 American Art Collector. Ruth represented Colorado USA in the 2009 Florence Biennial International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Florence, Italy. Indigo Publishing of Macon, Georgia published Portrait of Rosa Parks in the hard-cover book Montgomery River Region Sketchbook. The general president of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) acquired Soller’s oil portrait of a New York City firefighter entitled In Remembrance for his office in Washington, D.C. Caddell Construction Co., Inc. purchased five of Ruth’s works for their Montgomery, Alabama corporate art collection. Soller’s professional memberships include Art Students League Denver and Louisville Art Association (LAA). Ruth has exhibited across the USA from New York City to Los Angeles and from Montana to Alabama.
