Ruby Dale Austin
Ruby Dale Austin is a mixed media sculptor and surface designer.
Sculptures: In a world of distractions and overwhelm, her sculptures offer a moment to be still, pay attention, get curious, and quiet the noise. The materials used and the scale of these pieces evoke a talisman-like quality.
Surface Design: Under the playful brand Zilla Lilla, Ruby Dale designs colorful patterns and hand prints them onto a variety of surfaces including cards, journals, and textiles. Her motivation for making is to show up, say yes, and see what happens.
Community: Ruby Dale also leads experiential retreats for women, is a SoulCollage® facilitator, and is a member of the Arts Advocates Planning Committee. She brings her background in art education, librarianship, and counseling into everything she does. When not busy with the details of life or in her studio, Ruby Dale enjoys reading in her hammock, tubing the San Marcos River with her family, and watching tv dramas.
