A little about us

Founded in April 2022, Phthalo Ruth started as a passion project to supplement my full-time graphic design job. By sharing my whimsical illustrations and embracing a childlike approach to art, my instagram account grew rapidly and eventually lead to consistent sales. This success allowed me and my husband to leave our corporate jobs and together we've evolved into a six-figure business. As two individuals with an "I can do anything" mindset, we're now eager to build a team of self-starters who want to grow with us and contribute to our dynamic and expanding company. Join us on this exciting journey!
