Lee Dubin - Nationally recognized artist, is best know for her charming, beautifully executed paintings of life in the Victorian Era.  A native Californian who continues to paint in her Los Angeles studio, Dubin says, "I have painted since I could first hold a paint brush.  All I really ever wanted to be was an Artist".  Dubin attended the finest art schools in California including Chouinard Art Institute, Otis Art Institute, UCLA and Los Angeles Trade Technical College.  Her technique of glazing and under painting is a direct result of studying the works of the Old Masters.

One glance at a Dubin painting is not enough.  Upon further study, one soon discovers a fascinating visual story, an inside look as it were, into the lives and history of a bygone era.  A prolific and continually active artist, she is accomplished in many medias including watercolor, oil and pastels, as well as, lithographs and etchings.

Biography Continued..

I try to create a story of visual as well as mental thoughts, an inside look into the lives of the people of a time gone by. I enjoy the challenge of capturing shapes, textures and design, making certain my research for the costumes, characters and backgrounds are as technically correct as possible. Sometimes this requires intensive searching into libraries and museums or antique shops throughout the country.

I try to imagine the personalities of each of the characters before I start to paint. I think of what life was like in their place and time, then I sit down and put it all together to create what I have visualized in my mind. I try to find what is best of the old and bring it to life in my art. I am fascinated by the lure of the past, another place, another way of life and I hope I can show this with a one-act, one-scene, one moment look back in time. I endeavor through my art to bring to you, the viewer, a glance into yesterday, perhaps a tranquil moment or just a gentle pause in life.
