Poems by Ruth Venner FRSASA.
Renowned Macleay Island artist and calligrapher, Ruth Venner is recognised internationally for her beautiful works. Mostly self-taught, Ruth was influenced along the way by the most famous modern calligrapher, David Jackson, the Queen’s Scribe. Another major influence was Dr Lawrence Chan, an expert painter and calligrapher from the Wu Change Shu school in Shanghai. Ruth’s poetry features in many of her works. Hearing her recite is an absolute delight. She plays a major role in local art circles and is recognised for her enthusiasm and the quality of her work.
