Rubi was born in Vietnam, has led a somewhat nomadic life on four continents in her first 18 years of existence. She is currently creating work out of Kansas City, Missouri.
Drawings was her best friend throughout all of these wandering years; though she had other friends too. Rubi became a working architect like planned until she found out that people get paid to do concept art. Thanks to the internet, workshops and books, she has been learning non-stop and feeling grateful every day to be in the entertainment industry.
Rubi's work focuses mostly on fantasy environmental design. She set out to creating exhilarating worlds and stories, studying and being inspired by the best, and giving back to the society whenever possible.
