A Creative life
This site commemorates the creative life and works of Margaret Ruth Evans.
The exhibition, planned for August 6th and 7th 2021, celebrates not only her talent, but also the 50th wedding anniversary to her loving husband, Peter.
Known all her life as Ruth, Margaret Ruth Evans was born in Blackheath in the Midlands in 1949. In her early twenties she moved with her husband, Peter, to North Wales where Tom and Sally were born.
In 2017, Peter and Ruth moved to Govilon, a village they both came to love for its natural beauty and strong sense of community.
Sadly, Ruth was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after moving to Govilon, but despite the diagnosis did not let it define her and lived to her motto "While I can, I will".
You can see a more thorough biography here.
Ruth was inherently modest, and although some of her art has been on display (and sold) during her life, this exhibition is designed to allow friends, family, and anyone else interested to celebrate her talent.
Visiting the exhibition, you can expect to see a variety of her creative works, from paintings to pottery, from birthday gifts she made over the years to work that she did for pure enjoyment.
Nothing is for sale at the exhibition we're sorry to say. The works are far too precious to us and our memory of Ruth. She continued to paint right up until she passed, the picture on this site taken a few days before she left us.
We are inviting donations to be made in Ruth's name to St Davids Hospice, or MacMillan. Both organisations provided valued support to Ruth, and Peter. If preferred, any cancer charity of your choosing will no doubt be grateful for a contribution.
We have posted a short FAQ here.
