Rebecca is a self-taught oil painter favoring narrative art. She moved to NYC in 2000, eager to start work at a finance company with offices in the World Trade Center. Exactly one year after her first day on the job, at just 23 years old, she narrowly escaped the 9/11 terrorist attack. The years that followed were dark, and creativity was completely absent. In 2014, when her outward “normal” life and her private battle with PTSD collided, she finally sought help. She left the toxic relationship that kept her isolated for so long, and began thinking about a new future. She picked up a pencil for the first time in 20 years. It was suddenly clear that art was her survival language. And art was opening her eyes to all sorts of possibilities (in and out of the studio). She completed her first oil painting in 2016 and began practicing daily. Rebecca has since embraced art as a powerful therapy, a new career and an effective tool to raise awareness about trauma and healing.
Becky lives and works out of NYC, alongside her best gal and studio dog, Foxy. She graduated from Tufts University and received an MBA in health management from Zicklin Business School in New York City. She grew up in Fairfield, CT, always drawing and dreaming.
