|Rebecca has studied with nationally
known artists Sally Strand, Mitsuno Ishii Reedy, and John Lencicki, but
considers herself basically a self-taught artist.   Raised in a small
river town in Ohio, she has traveled and lived all over the country, but now
resides in Elizabeth, Colorado.   "I love to paint the scenes of life
in different areas of the country.   My goal is to take the person
who is viewing my art back to a nostalgic place in time.   To a moment
in their life when everything was right…to a feeling of safety and comfort.
There are enough negative things in life, art doesn't have to be one of them."
Rebecca has exhibited her work in many local and nationally juried art shows.
Her works hang in private and corporate collections throughout
the country.   She has been a featured artist in The Artist's Sketchbook
Magazine, Kite Tales and North Light Art Magazine.   Rebecca is
listed in the Who's Who of American Women 2004-2005.   She regularly
donates her work to such charitable organizations as Rocky Mountain PBS,
and The Douglas-Elbert County Women's Crisis Center to help them in
their fund raising efforts.   Most recently she has been
facilitating therapeutic art projects with The Delores Project,
a shelter for homeless women in Denver, Colorado.
Rebecca is a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and
Illustrators, The Pastel Society of Colorado, and
The Parker Artists Guild.
Rebecca is represented by The Firehouse Art Gallery in Fort Collins, CO,
Paintin' Up a Storm in Franktown, CO,
and The Running Creek Gallery in Elizabeth, CO.
