Paula Rubino is a printmaker and painter making contemporary imagery with classical techniques and materials. Spare compositions are arranged to evoke calm, color is placed to heighten mood, and multi-layered, broad brushwork builds a complex yet fresh surface.
Rubino trained at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, and furthered her studies with Norwegian figurative painter, Odd Nerdrum, in Norway. She is not only classically art trained, but she also earned degrees in Economics and Law from the University of Florida.
Born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in Florida, Rubino has since lived and worked in Mexico, Finland, and Italy. She is currently based in Stuart, Florida and also maintains a studio in Laitila, Finland.
