Welcome to my website! My name is Selah (say-luh) Ruckard. I am a self-taught artist out of Aurora, CO, who played basketball a majority of my life until recently. Most of my days were spent in the gym, with very minimal energy going towards my art all through high school.
An ACL/Meniscus tear, a chipped patella, and two full years as a college athlete later, I stopped hooping and started creating. With the wave of racial tension that has occurred just this past year, I took a huge leap of faith. I did not return to school, but instead I decided to put all of my time and energy into creating some moving art for you all to enjoy.
My mama is Hispanic and German, my daddy is Black and together they gave birth to two beautiful mixed children. I hope you are able to feel included in some sort of way when you look at my art. I am family with various colors, ethnicities, religions and sexuality's and I feel like because of this I am able to see different sides than most.
Art has been apart of my life as long as I can remember. Almost like I was born to do it. My notes always had doodles all over it. I could never leave a journal cover blank. To be able to move from doing it for fun, to doing it for fun and sharing it with you all is something I look forward to doing for as long as I can.
I hope y'all enjoy life through my artsy eyes :)
