Rebecca gets a lot of her inspiration for much of her art from traveling throughout the world. These experiences are reflected beautifully in some of her paintings. Her original art has been displayed in public venues and exhibitions. Private collectors have purchased her art. Several paintings hang in permanent collections including, government buildings in Utah County and Draper. She has won numerous awards for her work in various juried shows.

Rebecca says, “I have been blessed to see God’s beautiful creation through an artist’s eye. My hope is that I be able to convey that beauty to you, the viewer, not only visually but spiritually.”
