RUTH J. FLANIGAN
Ruth J. Flanigan has always loved to read and draw.
Through her childhood and teen years, she and her dad
would often go out sketching for the afternoon, searching
for the perfect landscape or farmhouse to draw. When
her parents brought the family to the Rhode Island School
of Design Museum, she noticed the RISD students with
their paint boxes and pads, and decided her future path.
