A full-time painter residing in Broomfield, Colorado, Ruth is inspired by the grandeur of the nearby Rocky Mountains. She paints the western landscape in a magical, mystical, surreal style. Ruth’s oil paintings of the historic architecture and the colorful people of the West, glow from within with southern charm. After twenty years of painting her work has developed a distinct and recognizable stylized realism. She perceives intensified colors, simplified forms and dramatic value contrasts in her compositions. She studied oil portraiture with Daniel E. Greene in his North Salem, New York studio and with Peggy Baumgaertner. Ruth’s influences include the work of John Singer Sargent, Edward Hopper, Winslow Homer, and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Indigo Publishing of Macon, Georgia published Soller’s 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. Ruth’s paintings have been exhibited from New York City to Los Angeles and from Montana to Alabama. Ruth will be representing Colorado USA in the 7th edition Florence Biennial International Contemporary Art Exhibition in Florence, Italy this December 5th to 13th.

Soller’s professional memberships include Oil Painters of America (OPA) and Louisville Art Association (LAA). Over 300 of her artworks are in private and business collections in New York City, Washington, D.C., Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Montana, Texas, Japan, and elsewhere. Ruth welcomes commissions for portraits and architectural paintings.
