I am a fine art photographer from Grand Rapids Michigan and now have a home base in Coarsegold, California. Since 1997, I have been living in an RV, traveling across the United States, Canada and Mexico as well as traveling internationally. Traveling has provided me with countless opportunities to photograph an extensive range of people, places, flora, fauna and anything else that captures my attention. I display my photographs in exhibits and online at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ruthhager and on Facebook. The easiest way to get to my photos on Fine Art America is to use my FAA website address which is http://www.ruth-hager.artistwebsites.com.
My primary goal in exhibiting my photographs is to share some of the beauty that I have found in my travels. If you find that my photos nourish you, please buy one. You will receive many years of pleasure for only a penny or two a day. Thank you to all who have purchased my photographs. I like the thought of my photographs finding places where they will feel right at home. Please email me with any questions or comments about my artwork.
