Growing up in a family drawn to the outdoors, Rebecca has always experienced a closeness to the natural world. With the supportive encouragement of her parents, and finding a talent in art, she chose to focus her future as a painter in her mid teens.
Rebecca’s primary goal in her work is to use her work to help the creatures she paints as well as their habitat. She participates in numerous wildlife and habitat conservation fundraising events to increase awareness and has generated thousands of dollars for wildlife and conservation through her work. Her paintings have been featured on several conservation/hunting stamps including the 2003 MN wild turkey stamp and the Manitoba conservation stamp.
She spends as much time as possible observing & experiencing the wildlife she paints: “We often take up to 5000 still photographs on a shoot. It is very important that the subject painted is studied from every available angle, as well as it’s habits & preferences”.
Additionally, just as Rebecca is dedicated to the preservation of wild lands and the wild creatures that depend on the existence of those places for their survival, the artist is also dedicated to the preservation of true traditional miniature painting in all it’s forms, a type of art that has been practiced since early writing. The artist and her family, all working ‘in miniature’ in their painting, work to raise awareness and education of classic miniature art. The artist is also devoted to encouraging young artists.
