Ruth San Pietro is an artist in Venice, California. Her highly sculptural work is inspired by her passionate love of wildlife and a desire to increase awareness of the importance of bio-diversity, and the value of
protecting wildlife habitats around the world. San Pietro’s work helps conservation organizations to raise needed funds to protect imperiled wildlife in their fragmented and shrinking habitats around the world. These sculptural paintings are a combination of paper fiber and mixed media. This innovative process created by San Pietro uses 100% recycled paper fiber, and promotes the reuse and recycling of paper fiber,saving Water and Trees.
