Biography from Springville Museum of Art:
Ruth Harwood, a daughter of James T. Harwood, became an accomplished poet, graphic artist/designer, painter, and playwright.  She was born in Salt Lake City and as a child, was undoubtedly her father's favorite model for numerous works done in Utah and Europe. 

She entered the University of Utah around 1916 and graduated with a degree in English in 1920. In that year she also won a prize at the U of U for "the best poetry of the year, 1919-20."  After graduation she moved to Berkeley, California.

In 1921, Harwood began graduate study at the University of California, and "won the Emily Chamberlain Cook Prize…for the best unpublished group of poems during the year" at Berkeley. Shortly thereafter, she won a prize "for writing an outstanding one-act play," but she graduated with a master's degree (around 1923) in graphic art.  For approximately the next five years, J.T. Harwood's eldest daughter was primarily interested in painting.

The works she created were either in poster paint or in an ink-spatter medium developed by the artist. Harwood also wrote poetry that she illustrated and published herself on a hand-press in her Berkeley home, and went on to illustrate the poetry of Ruth Saint-Denis, Flame Meditation and Lotus Light, published by Houghton-Mifflin.  She lived in Santa Barbara, California, during the 1940s and 1950s.
