She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Design and worked briefly for a small publisher before her career took a turn. She did not return to her art until 2008 when she began studying with Andy Braitman and Susan Matthews at Braitman Studio. She quickly realized she was hooked. In Spring, 2012, she completed Braitman’s intensive 3-month Artist-in-Residence program. Recently Becky began studying with Curt Butler at Butler Studio in Gastonia, NC.
My paintings reflect my interest and love of the landscape, whether rural or low country. I have a particular affinity for water which is reflected in many of my works.
I find painting water both inspiring and challenging. With each stroke of my brush or palette knife, I strive to create a definite mood through the use of varied paint applications and techniques. Bringing life to the canvas through color, texture and energetic paint application is a very important to me as I work to create both a beautiful painting and compelling viewer experience.
