Ridgers was born on the South Coast of England in September of 1968 and spent part of her childhood living on the quaint island of Majorca in The Mediterranean Sea. After spending 14 years living in Arizona, she has recently relocated to rural Wisconsin where she paints in her home studio. Ridgers has developed her own style working predominantly with acrylics accented with a range of mediums and techniques that in their contradiction create a complimentary, uniquely fresh look.
Ridgers’ multi media works have been described as a fusion of organic palette, natural elements and inner meditations. Her art can be found in both corporate and private collections in both Europe and The United States where she now resides. The subject matter of her paintings range from her bold minimalist representations to vivid and earthy abstracted landscapes.
‘My passion for the diversity found in nature, combined with a personal quest for balance and serenity, inspires my work … My goal is to fuse these elements together with a contemporary twist so that the viewer is invited to take a journey that is not only a visual experience, but also an intimate, emotional contemplation.’
