"As a paste impressionist painter, I aim to create an illusion of the scene in front of me, and evoke a mood or time of day, with color and light effects. At times, I use local color, while in other paintings, I employ alternative color schemes to convey a narrative or emotion. I am inspired by contemporary and late master artists, and strive to always continue learning and improving my artistic expression."

 

Background Information

Orit Reuben was born in Israel to a family of artists. She is greatly influenced by her grandfather an impressionist painter, and as a child she painted along-side her mother, who is also an artist. She immigrated to the States in her teens, with her family and settled in Minneapolis. Orit attended the University of Minnesota, and is a licensed interior designer.

Reuben moved to Orlando in 2006, and in 2009 came back to the arts by attending courses and studying under numerous master artists. She started as a figurative artist and has recently shifted her focus to landscape pastel painting. She is inspired by light affects and conveys emotion and mood through color.
