: Deborah Rubin

Deborah Rubin is one of the foremost floral watercolor painters in the country. Born in Chicago in 1948, Rubin holds a BFA from the University of Illinois. Her flowers have formed the base of over 50 exhibitions, garnered nearly 20 awards and have found their way into dozens of permanent collections. Deborah’s paintings combine a spectacular large scale with brilliant light and meticulous detail. She has been pushing the boundaries of photo-realism and hyper-realism since the mid 1970s with an eye on nature and more recently, architecture. She currently lives in western Massachusetts.

“Conservation spaces allow me to explore the untrampled, the unbuilt areas of the Pioneer Valley and seek solace and calm among the natural world where the imagery speaks loudly to me.”
