Name: Edward L. Rubin
Bio: Emmy Award winning Production Designer Edward L. Rubin has lived in Paris, New York, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Santa Barbara. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with honors from the University of California, Berkeley, and he holds a Master of Fine Art degree in Set and Costume Design for Theatre from Carnegie-Mellon University.
Edward studied etching and lithography at California State University Long Beach, and drawing and painting at the Academie de Port Royal in Paris, France. From 1991 through 1997 he had a studio space at the Hunter’s Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco. During this time he developed his mastery of soft pastel on paper, a medium he continues to discover new things about every day. Edward’s love of the Bay Area is evident in the many series of landscapes he created depicting its stunning beauty and his work of this period resides in many private collections. Edward now lives in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles, not far from where his grandparents built a home back in 1934.
