About Ruby

Ruby Keller’s mixed media paintings show a vibrant yet subtle use of colour and texture, and there's an unexpected twist in the story behind them...'Ruby Keller' is in fact the pseudonym for highly regarded artist, Peter Workwick.

Peter has always challenged different styles and techniques, and painting under a pseudonym gives him this ability to explore the art boundaries.

Peter started life in a small town in Lancashire, and following three years studying art and design, he then travelled around Europe, setting in Paris for three years. Having recently returned to England he now lives and works in a studio in beautiful Cumbria.

He believes in constant experimentation because, he says, “an artist’s work has to stay fresh, so he constantly needs new ideas. evolution happens naturally as you strive to improve.” he delights in working with fabric textures and regularly changes his subject matter to set himself new challenges, to enhance his creativity and hone his skills in style, techniques and interpretation.
