Luba M. Caruso was born into a family of artists. Both her mother and maternal grandmother were painters, and Caruso recalls her early experiences with their work as an absorption of artistic beauty. She attended Villanova and the Parsons School of Design, ultimately studying graphic design and fine arts. Caruso paints in oil, drawing inspiration from the Jersey Shore towns of Rumson and Fair Haven, painting both land and seascapes. “My style focuses on serenity,” she says, “through soft brush strokes, color composition, and a juxtaposition of the strength and power of water with the beauty of landscape.”
Caruso has painted local landscapes for many years. The soft brush strokes she describes form soft clouds looming above the water, hypnotic and alluring. Occasionally a boat bobs gently in the ocean or a local walks the beach, trailed closely by a loyal pet. “My art is a reflection of my everyday,” she says. “Art is a way of injecting beauty into the trying demands of life.”
Luba M. Caruso currently lives and works in Fair Haven, New Jersey.
