Luba Stolper is a contemporary artist whose passion for art comes to life in oil paintings reminiscent of the Old Masters. Born and raised in a small village in Ukraine, Luba spent much of her childhood in nature, capturing her surroundings through drawing. After moving to California, equipped with a keen eye for color and ascetics, Luba enrolled in The Fabric and Textile Design School in Berkeley, where many of her designs were featured in fashion magazines. As a self-taught artist seeking to enhance her ability, she studied for three years under the direction of artist Charles Becker. In 2015, Luba traveled to Florence to participate in an international workshop to deepen her knowledge of the intricacies of painting still life. With the desire to refine her skills, Luba has been training in Academic Style at The Russian River Atelier under the guidance of masters Naomi Marino and Jay Blums who received their education at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence.
