“Australian Ruth Marshall received a BFA in sculpture and printmaking at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Marshall was awarded the Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship to attend Pratt Institute in Brooklyn where she graduated with her MFA in 1995.  Working at the Bronx Zoo, home of the Wildlife Conservation Society, influenced Marshall deeply.  Since then she has became internationally known for her hand knit pelts of exotic animals endangered by the illegal skin trade. Each of her one-of-a-kind textiles represents an individual animal she spends months researching and recreating.  She currently resides in New York City and teaches as an adjunct professor part time at the School of Visual Arts”. [From the artist’s website/ Du website de l’artiste].
