Ruth Santee is a California based artist whose work has been exhibited in museum, non-profit and gallery venues.

Her work has been reviewed in publications including the Los Angeles Times, Oakland Tribune and the San Francisco Chronicle and the Sacramento Bee.

According to Ms.Santee, the depictions of insects "began (as) a summer long investigation of insects, their intrinsic beauty, their death and the fragility of life in general."
