Finding Yourself by Ruth Palmer

A piece dedicated to my very special and extremely talented friend Dave Moilanen.

Dave Moilanen

When I first met Dave, he was just a beginning artist with so much talent and promise. His flame fractals were so beautiful that I fell in love with them. The rest is history! So, love, hugs and much more continued success to you Dave!

Ruth’s works are extremely popular in print, particularly in the design market and hospitality industry. Her paintings and digital renderings can be enjoyed in many hotels and corporate offices worldwide.
