Inspiring wonder and connection ~ Rebekah’s work challenges the viewer to look beyond the surface. She often explores the balance between the abstract and the familiarity or the significance of place and memory. “Art is a personal experience, and I want the viewer to feel, see and discover something for themselves,” states Rebekah. Drawing from her Southern heritage and experiences growing up on the Gulf Coast, nature, water and family are ever-present themes in her work.
