Amongst all the stories, Ruby liked ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs’ the most. The story itself did not matter as much to Ruby as the colored illustrations were.

In the early 1970 's, Ruby moved to St. Maarten, her parents ' homeland and in 1983 she held her first solo exhibition.

Camp Life: We filed out of the grimy tent and I peered into the sad brown eyes of the woman in front of me. They were filled with hope, but I knew, that nothing could allow us to escape.
