Ruth H. ​​​​​​​— NO TIME FOR PLAY

I am an 18-year-old Black artist from Houston, TX. Something I follow in my everyday life is to represent the underrepresented, as I find myself as a teen, African American female to be underrepresented in the art world. To achieve this idea, I feature mainly POC in my artwork. My goal with my artwork is to shine light on others and provide a fresh perspective by showing the viewer what is in my mind and how I see the world. I work to make art for everyone and to one day become a household name while I am alive.

NO TIME FOR PLAY — 12 x 24. OIL ON CANVAS.

The painting features a boy’s road to a man as he reads in order to educate himself. It takes that self-accountability in order be successful in the future. Sometimes it requires sacrificing that playing time.
