painting: “Letting Go” 36 inches x 36 inches (90cm x 90cm)

This artist was introduced to painters TUBES through Alan Clement Evans who has worked along her to discover the various techniques she uses with cold wax. As an American abstract artist she is known for the rich, complex surfaces she creates with oil paint and the cold wax medium. Her work is included in hundreds of art collections, private, public, and corporate, and she exhibits regularly in fine art galleries across the country. Rebecca travels extensively teaching and in artist residencies, both in the US and internationally.

Rebecca lives and works in the dramatic, rugged landscape of northern New Mexico, another strong influence on her work.

The artist is widely recognised for her development of original techniques using cold wax medium, detailed in the comprehensive book, Cold Wax Medium: Techniques, Concepts & Conversations.
