Meheen Ruby is primarily a painter and printmaker, but also dabbles in jewelry and ceramics, making work on the Central Coast. Meheen began pursuing an art career in high school, joining the nonprofit Youth Arts Collective in Monterey and attending Monterey High’s Art Careers Academy. She continued her education at Humboldt State University, and graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art with a Certificate in Museum and Gallery Practices in 2014. Meheen relocated back to Monterey County in late 2015. In 2017 she opened her own studio space as part of ArtWorks PG and joined the staff of Youth Arts Collective as an art mentor. She is a 2017 recipient of the Arts Council for Monterey County’s LEAP grant for emerging artists.
Meheen has regularly exhibited in solo and group shows, including the Humboldt County Fair Juried Show, the Sand City Juried Show, the Seaside Art Association Open Studio Tour, the Arts Habitat Open Studio Tour, ArtWorks @ PG Third Fridays, Youth Arts Collective biannual shows, Wildfire Arts Street Festival, and the Avery Gallery.
When she is not making art & jewelry, she is on her family’s organic farm startup. Check out www.robinasorganics.org and Meheen’s work at www.meheenruby.com.
