Luba grew up in Utica, NY. She studied art history and painting at Herkimer County Community College and graduated from Utica College of Syracuse University. The process of simplifying and pushing an image to its basic components is what motivates Luba. Mood, color, design, line, shape, and composition are always in play in a delicate balance. Her art is guided by subliminal sources and and an unconscious intuitive flow. She wants the viewer to be drawn into the image and discover the hidden nuances.
