Welcome to my sanctuary

I’ve been drawing and writing for basically as long as I can remember. Even as a young girl, my mind was continiously overloaded by my imagination, fantasy and reality blending continuously and the only way to have some peace of mind was to do something with it; Hence, the first drawings and storylines were put to paper. It didn’t matter to me that I had no talent whatsoever (still doesn’t most of the time). It was my little world, my sanctuary, where I felt save and complete


Now, many years later, my art is still as important to me as it was back then. My skills have slowly improved over the years, even going as far as creating my own  characters. They are what’s keeping me sane during the darkest hours of my life. There is nothing in this world that calms me and makes me feel more alive then when I’m drawing, painting or writing. Like most artists I continously want to improve myself and explore my talents, but unlike maybe most artists it is born from a desire to create the images, portrets or stories exactly like they are in my minds eye. To not have them altered because my talent is not up to par with my fantasy.


Through this website I want to share some of my work with you and, with it, offer you a glimpse into my sanctuary. It will not be the best art you have ever seen, nor will it be the worst, but it comes from the hearth and I enjoyed every second creating it…  ~Ruka
