Born and raised in Southern California, Rebecca spent a happy childhood wandering through the San Bernardino Mountains and playing in her mother’s flower shop. Her artistic interests formed at an early age and led her to study dance, music, and visual art. While touring as a professional ballroom and tango dancer in her teens and twenties, Rebecca often took time to sketch her surroundings. By age 16, she had taught herself how to paint in oils, working mostly from portraits of classic film stars.
During her career as a dancer Rebecca also worked in set and costume design, art direction, theatre and film production, and hair and makeup design. At age 30 Rebecca retired from dance and theatre to focus primarily on painting, writing, illustration and teaching. Since then, she has taught art at San Diego Unified School District’s Washington Elementary STEAM Magnet and Roosevelt International Baccalaureate, and at the San Diego Rescue Mission.
Rebecca's artistic inspiration comes from love of her California homeland, of travel, nature, humans, magic, and stories. Trained as a plein air painter, Rebecca spends much of her time painting outdoors on location. The gardens, landscapes and architecture of San Diego and of the places she travels offer endless opportunities to capture beautiful moments. Painting mostly in oils, she works in both brush and palette knife, using each tool to create strikingly different effects.
Reading and writing are important elements of Rebecca's artistic life, and many of her paintings are inspired by fairytales, myths, dreams, and visions. Her fascination with humans and animals often turns her work illustrative. Rebecca's current series of work depicts ancient magical stories and whimsical experiences using the light and color of plein air landscape, the expressive beauty of humans and animals, and the many textures of oil paint. She has been most influenced by the Wyeths, Van Gogh, Emily Carr, Meinrad Craighead, Hilma Af Klint, Georgia [...]Read the rest of this bio on the
