Taking the pressure out of deciding

Last month saw the launch of Marianella apartments in Rathgar.  Interior designer, Aoife Rhattigan of Restless Design had chosen two pieces of Ruthie Ashenhurst’s art for the Penthouse on show. As you can see from the photos below, they fitted perfectly with the interiors and complemented the design aesthetic.

Many of us are unable to have an interior designer to help when choosing art for our homes. If you do not feel confident enough to choose a painting without seeing it in situ , you can have a selection of paintings from large to small brought over to your residence or office in order to see what would suit your space the best. There is no commitment to purchase. Along with this is the added bonus of Ruthie’s expertise and experience to assist you in your selection.

For more information on this service, feel free to contact rachel@ashenhurst.com, who would be happy to answer any questions you may have or to set up an appointment.

Looking forward to hearing from you...

Limited edition prints

To celebrate 2018 being the year of love (well.... lets hope so), I have branched out and am so excited to offer limited edition prints. These will be available online to buy with free postage and packaging to Ireland and the UK.

Just in time for Valentine's day, there are 50 limited edition prints of my painting "Heart of Gold" with an added detail of hand gilded gold leaf heart. Each print will be numbered individually, signed by myself and come with an authenticity certificate.  So if you are looking for something special for your significant other or even better show yourself some love, why not treat yourself to one of these limited edition prints! I also think they would make great wedding and anniversary presents too!

To show my love for you all, I have a discounted price of €100 for the first 10 limited edition print of "Heart of Gold"

Click the photograph below to find out more details on this  print.

Lots of Love

Ruthie
