Biography


Becky's interest in painting and drawing began as a child and those early seeds of joy were nurtured in the museums of Europe during her early adult years. Although she pursued an education and career in the computer industry for two decades, she continued her art interests with classes and occasional exhibits. In 1990 she retired from the computer field and has devoted herself exclusively to her lifetime's passion for painting and drawing.
 
The focus of her art training and studies has been in the representational traditional style with an emphasis on life drawing and painting, portraiture, still life and land/seascapes. An important period of study was with the Lyme Academy of Fine Art in Old Lyme, Connecticut and the Mystic Art Association in Mystic, Connecticut. She has taken many workshops throughout the U.S. with a variety of nationally known artists developing her skills and experience.
 
In 2001 she was commissioned by the Pensacola Junior College Foundation to paint a portrait of Anna Lamar Switzer that hangs in the College's Hall of Honor. She has also taught drawing and painting both privately and in groups at the University of West Florida and Pensacola Junior College (now Pensacola State College.)
 
Floral still lifes and "floral portraits" have consistently been her primary emotional passion, closely followed by Abstracts and occasionally an assortment of other subjects; since 2010 portraits of her godchildren.    Her home and studio are  located on Pensacola Beach, Florida.
