Les Darlings Artistes

Ruth Rankin and Bryan Andrews are two artists who share many mutual inspirations and passions. We adore art, travel and each other.

Our work reflects our enthusiasm for life and depicts vibrant, colourful scenes from our travels. France features strongly in our work, especially the Languedoc region in the south. Above all, we love lots of colour.

How Les Darlings Artistes Got Their Name

A few years ago we received a Christmas card from some friends, with the message “To Les Darlings Artistes of international renown.” We found this so funny and charming that the name stuck. We’re still waiting for the international renown. Meanwhile, we continue to paint.
