ABOUT BECKY
Becky has been painting and drawing most of her life. Her paintings are mostly impressionistic. Becky loves capturing the vibrancy of color, light, and form. Landscape is usually what she’s drawn to, and she loves a scene that has a serenity and peace to it; she is especially drawn to paths. Becky loves the spontaneity in her style of painting and being in the moment. To her, painting is the closest thing to being in love. Lately Becky’s work has gone in the direction of abstract, nonobjective mixed media and collage, which she finds even more spontaneous. As a landscape can take more planning, her abstract work is unplanned for the most part and takes on a life of its own as the painting develops. For Becky this is so freeing and lets her explore endless possibilities, which is what she loves about painting in general, that there are so many options and mediums. Becky works in all mediums: oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor and has done scrimshaw and scratchboard. Becky teaches classes occasionally, and loves inspiring others to realize their creativity, encouraging others to explore their creativity with art. She also teaches painting and drawing individually or in groups at all levels. For Becky, her art is life-long process of growing, learning and exploring. Visit Becky’s work at Artists of Crested Butte (formerly Artists of the West Elks) or here.
