About Ruth E Dellinger

Ruth Dellinger was born in 1950 in the state of New Jersey to Mary F Lavas (and Albert DeStafano, whom she never met). At four months of age she was adopted by a couple, John & Elizabeth Anthony, who had one other adopted child and raised both children as their own. In 1956 the family moved from the East coast to Eugene, Oregon. She attended elementary through high school in Eugene, Oregon, graduating in 1969. Working for 25 years at a utility in various roles, she grew from clerical positions to Benefits and Payroll Administrator. After working at the utility she went on to become Human Resources Manager at Georgia Pacific Corp., in Eugene. Happily retiring in 2005 she was able to explore her artistic passions full time. The coloring book Tangled Shapes was her first published work. A second coloring book will soon be released, Tangled States which is a compilation of drawings of each of the 50 states that make up the US. Beyond that, there are a couple more book ideas yet percolating.
