Hi! I'm Rua!
I'm a disabled embroidery artist who recently relocated from Minneapolis to my hometown of Mason City, Iowa. Drawing and embroidery have been very therapeutic throughout Fibromyalgia symptoms and the pandemic.
I enjoy working in a variety of mediums, but my main love is embroidery. I make mostly soft sculptures and have recently moved into designing kits. Sharing my passion for this art form is extremely important to me.
When not working on projects, I spend time with my husband, Derek, and beautiful daughter bunny, Petra.
Curious about work for sale?
Currently, I have work available at the Clear Lake Art Center in Clear Lake, Iowa and Tous in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I'm available for commissions and will have and update soon for the Emil & Bea page on Etsy.
