Southport artist Ruth Spillane has created some beautiful new LOVE Southport tote bags

A talented artist who creates beautiful drawings of Southport’s iconic buildings is nearly half way to her target to produce a special illustrated book of the seaside resort. 

Ruth Spillane is now appealing for local people, or local businesses, who can help her to reach her target of £1,000 so the ‘Southport Illustrated’ book can be published, having raised £439 so far. 

The page is called ‘Southport Illustrated A look at Southport past and present’.

Ruth is raising the sum through the Kickstarter website, a home for creative minds which allows people to help support a great idea and make it a reality.

Ruth said: “I am currently at £439 and need to reach £1,000 in six days to receive funding otherwise my project will be cancelled! 

“I would love to hear from anyone willing to back this project? Wheter it might be local businesses or members of the public? 

“I really appreciate anyone’s help!”

Ruth, who has been inspired by art in Paris, London, New York, Moscow and other places around the world, believes that “nothing compares to the variety and beauty we have here in Southport”. 

Her instantly recognisable artwork already adorns prints, greetings cards and tote bags in shops around Southport and also on the Etsy Southport website. 

She said: “In 2016 I started a project called ‘Illustrating Southport’ in my home town, where I illustrated well-known landmarks, shops and streets, concentrating on the beautiful Victorian architecture we have here in the North West. 

“My work was noticed and praised by local newspapers which published several of my illustrations. 

“This brought my work to a wide variety of different audiences, for example local business owners, charities, community organisers etc who have since commissioned me to create custom made brands and logos for a variety of purposes.  

“Alongside these commissions, I also create cards, prints and art work for local retailers which have proven incredibly popular and have enabled me to grow my business alongside my portfolio.

“I am now undertaking an MA in Illustration at Falmouth University.” 

Ruth lives in Southport with her husband, three children, and a rabbit called Mango.

    Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
