Was born in Riga, Latvia in 1952. Since 1973, she lives in Israel with her husband and two children. Betty paints with oil, acrylic and aquarelle in a meticulous realistic style of painting, tending from time to time to become abstract, inspired by the surrounding nature. Betty Rubinstein studied at the Rozental Art School and Art Academy in Riga. She also specialized in painting and drawing under the guidance of the English artist Glen Soho, studied art teaching at the Oranim College and has a B.A. in Art from the University of Haifa.

Betty´s works relate mainly to Expressionism, being influenced by such great artists as Van Gogh, Matisse, Cezanne and undoubtedly Vassili Kandinsky. "I try to capture the fill, the very aroma of such ephemeral things, as the light and atmosphere of landscapes. I want to motivate people whose daily lives are enmeshed in complexities of the modern world, to stop for a moment and recall the purity and gentleness of nature, to enjoy the silence of it all" (Betty Rubinstein).
