Women of Sunbelt: Ruth Todd Evans

Ruth Todd Evans has had a life-long love of plants, gardening and nature. Following her career as a physician specializing in internal medicine and geriatrics, she has been pursuing other life-long interests in art and literature. Although her medium is usually oil, she used pen and watercolors to create a child’s version of Chinese brush painting for her book The Panda Who Would Not Eat. The boy holding the balloon was based on her grandson who loved to visit the San Diego Zoo and San Diego Botanic Garden (formerly Quail Botanical Gardens.)
