Welcome to the ramshackle RuffRootCreative site, blog and new RuffRoot apparel brand in development.
An art, photography and sculpture enthusiast. This is where I complile and record some of the fruits of my creative moments online and some of my mistakes too boot! Mistakes are important. This is a blog as much as anything else. My work is born from the pure love of organicaly creating, the joy of working with materials, digital tools and random ideas, free from the shaping of institutional and art world critique. Pretty much self taught, therefore, I hope that my work appeals directly, visually, in a naive playful way. A bit Heath Robbinson in my approach, by design, sometimes it works, and when it does, it works well. One hopes ;) .
Thanks for stopping by.
Raw Intuitive Outsider arts, craft and creative photography inspired by the green fuse that flows through the life force of the human soul.

The development of the awareness of forms of creative expression that exist outside accepted cultural norms or the realm of "fine art", began with the researches of psychiatrists early in the century.
