Ruth Skilbeck, PhD
I was founding director of a media arts writing and cultural research business Arts Features International in Sydney. My feature stories and articles were published in international arts periodicals and magazines, and my research articles in peer reviewed journals and books.
Now I am writing fiction, novels, one of which includes my photo art works. I have published hundred of articles, in periodicals including peer-reviewed articles, in books, and in newspapers. Recently I have curated an exhibition which included my art work, and launched my first novel, as part of this research. I am founding editor and publisher of the 'Escape Artists' PostMistress Press project which will soon publish an anthology with works by 37 authors and artists from around the world.
My interviews with leading international artists such as Tracey Emin, Antony Gormley. Tracey Moffatt. Fiona Foley, and Guo Jian to mention but a few and my years as an art writer and freelance journalist in the art world have given me an insight into the art world and the advances made by women in contemporary art and literature that I draw on subliminally and overtly in my fiction, and in my approach to making and publishing books, as well as writing them.
