I love to travel to quiet, scenic remote spots of natural beauty. I desire to paint the feel of the cool moist shadows; the stare of a bear's eyes looking back.
I’m passionate about painting a deeper view. Seeing not only the pool at the bottom of a waterfall, but also, the colors of the sky reflected in the ripples of the moving waters. Underneath these ripples, the rocks and their shadows.
My goal is to feel a connection to the painting itself, transporting me back to the moment that inspired me to paint it.
A former Belly dancer, a costume designer, gardener, bobbin lace maker, oil painter, quilter, hiker, naturalist, wildlife rehabilitator, photographer; Becky thrives on artistic outlets.
Becky started painting with oils in 1978. Her subjects were mostly religious portraits, and wildlife. After the loss of her studio in 2000, she took a detour and became a professional Belly Dancer. In 2013 returning to painting, she broadened her artistic palette by painting exclusively in watercolors for 6 years. She has recently returned to oils with a new perspective, a driven passion and a hunger to paint.
Becky resides in a wooded forest in East Central Minnesota with the love of her life, husband of 37 years and her greatest joy, her daughter, plus 3 dogs.
