Fiammetta Rubin was born in Rome in 1936 and currently lives in Philadelphia. Showing promise from a very early age she came to the USA to study painting, architecture, printmaking and philosophy. During a career spanning more than 60 years, she has excelled in nearly all artistic disciplines. During the 1950's she studied abstract expressionist painting at Berkeley. During the late 1960's and early 1970's she created an entirely new enamelling technique which combined her metalsmithing, drafting and printmaking skills; Rubin came to Philadelphia in 1973 to apprentice with Stanley Lechszin at Tyler School of Art, working with hand hammered cooper, enamels and plastic resins and was involved in the burgeoning 1970's American craft movement. From the mid seventies to mid 1980's, she showed at Spring Street Enamels Gallery (NYC) and Langman Gallery (Phila.) and taught enameling at her studio. Also at that time, she began to make extremely fine and complex drawings first with colored pencils and then ballpoint pens. In the early 1990's she began to work with digital photography of plants, flowers, and other natural objects, and until the present has combined digital photography and drawing. Her work runs the gamit from classically inspired representational art with religious, historical and philosophical themes to completely abstract art.
