Beatriz Rubio was born in 1965 in Albacete (Spain). She graduated in Fine Arts at the Complutense University of Madrid, where she specialised in restoration in 1988. She then went further with her studies and decided to work in the restoration world, obtaining a scholarship from La Caixa in 1989 and the Scholarship from the Spanish Academy in Rome in 1990.

As a restorer she has worked for private collections, the Spanish National Heritage, the Fine Art Museum of Catalonia, the Coliseum of Rome, and Santiago's Pórtico de la Gloria amongst others.

She developed an artistic vocation very early in her life which she always kept parallel to her career and later, as a mother of five, when she stopped working to look after her daughters.

During these years, she also enrolled in different courses like Pedagogy and Biography and graduated with a Master in Art Therapy at the Complutense University of Madrid. After this training, her artistic style, initially more figurative, evolved into an abstract style.

After living in Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Tenerife and Mallorca, she moved to Freiburg (Germany) in 2004, where she had the opportunity to spend some time in the workshop of  Paul Pollock.
