J. Ruffin is a realist whose artistic imagination is interplanetary yet rooted in godly truth with logical rational. His art and poetry is a result of his life experiences and testimonies of how God has been the salvation of a boy who grew up in west Texas without any consistent godly masculine examples.His grandmother was the spiritual conduit in his life as he grew up. As an adolescent and teen, he remembers playing in a scrap woodpile behind a wood shop that was near his home. Of course he had no idea that his imagination during those playtimes would lead to the future pleasure he would experience when working on his art projects.
After finding in his garage the original Hamite prototypes that were done several decades earlier,he spent two years handcrafting each piece of this unique design so those who had an appreciation for this type of art heritage would get the highest level of gratification from it on each observation.It is his desire that each observation will bring to memory the richness of every ethnicity; from the simplicity of its lack to the extravagance of its wealth.
