Ruth Russell Williams - Folk Artist
Henderson / Vance County
Ruth Russell Williams - Folk Artist Ruth Russell Williams was born and raised in rural North Carolina. Her family worked as sharecroppers, and her grandmother worked for large plantation owners. In her early forties, following the raising of four children and the establishment of a successful business, she started painting. In her words, "to tell my life story." Now an internationally recognized American Folk Artist, Mrs. Williams continues to paint her memories of her past. Mrs. Williams' art brings to life her unique views and perspectives of the rural South during those simpler days.
