Ruth Freeman was my paternal grandfathers sister. I knew of her history, but never saw her sketches before…so, thank you..!
What a pleasure to finallysee her work..!
I ended up working in design ( scenery & costumes ), as well as scene painting and building props, at the stratford shakespeare festival of Canada.
