Jill rubin, MFT
When she isn't painting, local artist Jill Rubin practices as a psychotherapist in Santa Barbara, specializing in treating individuals dealing with anxiety, sexuality, and relationship issues. Jill has dabbled in art her whole life, but she is now focusing on abstract painting. She finds that it is the perfect kind of right brain fun to balance her work with clients. It's been an important way for her to find an avenue for her creativity and self expression.
The pieces in this exhibit of her work are essentially studies of color interacting with texture and the layering of paint. She utilized acrylic paint and loves to experiment with a variety of techniques to apply the paint to the canvas. Jill has enjoyed both finding and losing herself in this work. She is honored to be able to share this experience with you.
The inaugural artist to debut works on the Isabella Gourmet Foods walls, Santa Barbara local Carlos Mascherin is bold in his artistic approach. His paintings are easily recognizable for their sheer size, as well as their striking crimson color schemes and seductive female forms.
Carlos is also a Master Sommelier, and serves as Director of the local group Sommeliers of the American Riviera. He can be spotted behind the bar at Armada Beer & Wine Merchant in Santa Barbara educating amateur and seasoned oenophiles alike on the nuances of wine sipping.
HEIDI (PASCH) Julian
A decorated gymnast and dancer, Heidi Julian parlayed these talents into the personal training field. Her intrigue for human motion is carried into her artwork, capturing moment in vibrant color on canvas. Born, raised, and educated in the Santa Barbara area, Heidi now lives with her husband in Las Vegas, where she continues to paint in between caring for her newborn daughter and 2 step-children.
