This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Denver, Colorado on February 7, 1901, the daughter of artist Barbara Larimer.  Ruth was taught to paint early in life by her mother. The family settled in Los Angeles in 1911.  Following graduation from Hollywood High School, she went to UCLA and studied privately with Jean Mannheim.  After her marriage to engineer Thomas Myers in 1933, she continued to be active in the local art scene until her death in an auto accident in Los Angeles on April 30, 1958.  Primarily a portrait painter, her work also includes scenes of Mexico, England, the Monterey Peninsula and southern California.  Her work evolved from Tonalism (1920s) to Regionalism (1930s) to Abstractions (1950s).
