Ruth Heil is an author, freelance writer, musician, and Nature-print artist. An enduring respect for the earth is the common thread that ties together all her work. Her philosophy is embodied by the gifts given to her at birth: a life surrounded by Nature, the intelligence to understand its importance to life, and the wisdom to act with gratitude.
