our story

Coming from a strong family business background, Ruth Liddle began her career in the Irish art industry with a degree from NCAD.

With over 20 years’ experience in the Irish art & retail business Ruth established GardenSculptures.ie in 2013 to offer & expose Irish made sculptures to both the garden lover & those working in the industry.

Ken Folan is best known for his numerous, successful large scale outdoor “Vanishing Art” exhibitions set in the beautiful grounds of Carton House, Maynooth, Co Kildare.

The resounding success of these exhibitions along with winning 1 gold & 2 silver gilt medals at Bloom for The Garden of Sculptures, led to Ruth & Ken together in 2015 opening The Kildare Gallery at Carton House Hotel.
