Ruth Clampett: Founder, Creative Director of Clampett Studios

Ruth Clampett, daughter of legendary animation director, Bob Clampett, has spent a lifetime surrounded by art and animation. Graduating with Distinction from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Ruth opened her own Design/Photography studio in 1984. During this period she also taught Photography to designers at UCLA for three years. In 1985 the Clampett family established the Bob Clampett Animation Foundation and began selling limited edition animation art taken from Bob’s original drawings. Ruth became Creative Director and produced editions from Bob’s Warner Bros. And Beany & Cecil cartoons for the growing animation art market. At the end of 1992 Warner Bros. Decided to develop their own gallery division and brought Ruth on as Creative Design Manager. Ruth began her position at Warner Bros. almost fifty years after her Father left the studio. Eventually promoted to Vice President of Design for all store product, Ruth and her team of thirty-five Designers and Illustrators created over 2, 000 entertainment related products per year, including animation art and gallery gifts that were sold in stores throughout the world. After the closing of the WB Studio Stores, Ruth was awarded the license to continue the gallery business, and established Clampett Studio Collections in fall of 2001.  Bob Clampetts daughter Ruth Clampett, studio head and Hollywood Royalty.
