Ruthie Vosberg of rural Cuba City is the featured artrist at Wisconsin Bank & Trust in August and September.
Vosberg is “mostly a self-taught oil painter, floral designer, seamstress and photographer. I’ve painted farm scenes, people and pet portraits, floral and scenery on canvas, wood, old milk cans, saw blades and fabric.”
Vosberg attended the former St. Clara Academy at Sinsinawa Mound, and formerly worked for the Shopping News.
“I love the beauty and harmony of nature,” said Vosberg. “In observing the color, texture, light, intricate detail, mood and ever-changing seasons, I appreciate the care and love that the Master Artist takes the time to share with us.”
Vosberg created a cow, Bessy, representing the Backbone of America, dairy farmers, for the 2006 Madison Cow Parade. She also designed the 5½-foot catfish, “An American Hero,” at the Platteville Area Chamber of Commerce office, and the “Come Unto Me” mural for the Benton Bible Church.
