This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Camus, Washington, painter Ruth Halvorsen became a resident of Portland, Oregon where she was known for her landscape subjects and for being a writer and educator.  Her preferred mediums were oil and watercolor.  From 1940 to 1960, she was an art instructor at Portland State College, and from 1943 to 1962, was Art Supervisor for the Portland Public Schools.

She studied at the Portland Art Museum School; the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York; the University of Oregon; and Columbia University.  Influential teachers were Walter Beck, Charles Martin, Albert Heckman, and Jean Charlot.

Halvorsen's work can be found at Reed College, the University of Oregon at Eugene, Fort Summer Marine Hospital in New Mexico, and the Portland Art Museum.

She received the Pratt Institute Alumni Award for distinguished service in art education.
