Sue Rubira studied illustration at the University of West England, Bristol and the Royal College of Art, London. Her work has been included in the Singer & Friedlander – Sunday Times Watercolour Competition (1995, 2006, 2007) and the Royal Society of Portrait Painters’ exhibition 2007.
This portrait is of Rubira’s mother and was painted in the artist’s studio. Rubira says ‘I chose to position her purposefully under a sky light which presented her in the natural, unembellished state most familiar to me.’
