Through her work as a professional musician, Ruth proves that music is not just auditory in nature. Born deaf in a musical family and having studied at the Royal Welsh College of Music for her B.Mus honours degree in music and flute performance, she is a flautist, music teacher and workshop practitioner. As a visionary artist and Clore Leadership fellow, she has also developed professional relationships with arts, music and media organisations nationally and worldwide.

Ruth founded Audiovisability in 2016 to bridge the gap between deaf and hearing artists, primarily by using visual arts and music. Audiovisability is a charity that brings the highest quality of classical and non-western traditional music to deaf people. They recognise the innate talent of deaf musicians through the forging of partnerships, music education, and innovative thinking.
