Donna Ruff

American, born 1947

Donna Ruff grew up in Miami Beach, Florida, and was an award-winning children’s book illustrator in New York before earning her MFA at Rutgers University in 2000. Her work with books and graphics may have been genetically determined, since her great-grandfather was a book binder in Russia and her grandparents were early recyclers of books and paper in Chicago.” She moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2011, and is adjunct faculty at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.
