Andy Ruble received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from Louisiana State University.

The heart of his work is the hybridization of organic and architectural structure. His work demonstrates how the analogous structures of both natural and manmade objects are important to the survival of the whole.

Ruble has held various teaching positions at Cabrillo College, Monterey Peninsula College, and Southeastern Louisiana University. He is currently the director of ceramics at Foothill College in Los Altos, California and maintains his own ceramic studio in downtown Santa Cruz.
