Ruth Collett’s ability to capture the life of her subjects is reflected in the bouncy, life-loving nature of the artist herself! Collett’s work is often very personally rooted, often basing portraits on herself or family members.
Collett has completed a series of commissions for Nelly Duff, and Nelly’s head (the infamous fag smoking crone hung in the gallery) has become an icon of Columbia Road. In between projects the artist practices specialist hair insertion for the world-famous Madam Tussauds.
