Artist biography

Astrid Ruiz Moreno was born in Medellin, Colombia where she qualified and worked as an Architect for a period of time. However, throughout the years, a recurrent and growing interest in colour, shape and form, led her to experiment with many different disciplines including sculpture, watercolour painting and mixed media.

Since moving to the UK 13 years ago, Astrid has been living and working in Kingsbridge, where she has discovered her latest passion: to create colourful jewellery made from a wide variety of materials. Her latest and newest collection, is formed using acrylic resins, coloured, cut and combined into many shapes and colours. Reminiscent of sweets and rock they are beautiful and fun, and the greatest addition to any wardrobe!
