|See the work of painter, storyteller and poet Ruby Bute
Ruby Bute is certainly one of the most multifaceted artists in the Caribbean. Famous as a painter, she is also admired for her poems, with two published volumes: "Golden Voices of S'Maatin" and "Floral Bouquets to the Daughters of Eve".
As a master storyteller and painter, Ruby Bute has, during 30 years, never stopped to declare her love for St.Martin. Not surprisingly, her paintings and poems reflect historical and sociological aspects of St. Martin's lifestyle and culture, as well as its natural beauty.
The bright colors, the warm expressive faces of beloved musicians, her portraits of children and "Dem Ole Days" are testimonies of her understanding of the heart and soul of St. Martin.
Visit her studio, feel at home, enjoy her recitals while sipping her home-made liqueurs. Ruby often organizes cultural events and exhibitions for other island's artists in her studio.
Lady Ruby Bute has been chosen by the readers of the St. Maarten Daily Herald as"Best Artist of the Year 2010", not only because of her artistic contribution, but also for her dedication to promoting arts, culture and education.
