Dee Ruff

www.blackcatmosaics.com

(770) 712-5505

 

Dee Ruff worked for 17+ years as a Master of Clinical Social Work, offering support and counseling in hospice care, maternal/child health settings, Neonatal ICU, and private adoption services.  Her second career path led her into the field of Therapeutic Massage.  She became a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist, creating a small, successful private practice in Historic Roswell, Georgia. In 2011, Dee’s career in massage therapy ended when she experienced medical problems.   

Currently, Dee enjoys the process of experimenting and learning about various styles of mosaic art.  She enjoys creating garden mosaics, such as birdbaths and sculptural mosaic pieces, where she uses waterproofing techniques and epoxy grout.  Indoor mosaic art has included everything from mirrors to a whimsical mosaic shoe.  Dee is particularly drawn to abstract expressionism in both her garden and home designs. 

When she isn't busy with mosaic art, Dee enjoys gardening, travel, and visiting art galleries and museums. An avid music lover, Dee listens to diverse types of music during her creative process.  She lives with her husband, two teenage daughters, and three pampered cats.


Dee is a member of:

Society of American Mosaic Artists (SAMA)

Contemporary Mosaic Art (CMA)

Atlanta Mosaic Art Guild

Alpha Arts Guild

Black Cat Mosaics is humorously named in honor of a beloved family pet (Johnny, a black cat), who continues to be mesmerized and intrigued when she creates mosaic art.  He remains her #1 mosaic “helper.”
