Rutherford is a muralist, illustrator and activist who is known for introducing the project entitled ‘Her Voice Carries’, to the city of Rochester, New York, where she lives and works.

Besides supporting women through her Rochester project, Rutherford’s paints murals throughout the state of New York, implementing naturalistic, spiritual and Native American elements into her work. Trying to bring people and communities together through art, she believes that murals work their way into the fabric of people’s daily lives and therefore should be accessible to all and never be owned by someone entirely. Besides working as a muralist and a freelance illustrator she teaches introduction to painting and advanced painting at the University of Rochester, introducing students to mural painting in the latter.
