Paula Rubino is a 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.  Recent work focuses on the figure and face. 


Rubino trained at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, and furthered her studies with Odd Nerdrum

in Norway.  She also graduated with degrees in economics and law from the University of Florida.

Born in Trenton, NJ and raised in Florida, Rubino has since lived and worked in Mexico, Italy, and Finland.  She is

currently based in Stuart, Florida and also maintains a studio in Laitila, Finland.
