Sula Rubens studied at Ipswich Art School and Central/St. Martin's School of Art. Since graduating in 1989, she has practised as a painter and printmaker, living, working and exhibiting in many countries (including Gdansk, Poland; Amsterdam, Holland; St. Petersburg, Russia; France; Greece; Spain and Ireland.)

As an artist she has often immersed herself in various landscapes, buildings and their people. She has collaborated with artists, poets and musicians nationally and internationally. She tends to work in series that evolve from the circumstances she encounters.

Residencies include the Michaelhouse in Cambridge; Potton Hall Recording Studio, Suffolk; The Westerkerk, Amsterdam; The South Lookout Tower, Aldeburgh, Suffolk.

In 2019 Sula was elected as an Associate Member of The Royal Watercolour Society and in 2022 she was honoured with full membership. Her work is represented in public and private collections in this country and abroad including The Leicestershire Collection for Schools & Colleges and The Town Council of Amsterdam and has been awarded numerous prizes (including Winsor & Newton Awards for Watercolour and for Oil Painting and The Anna Airey Memorial Award.)
