Becca is currently trying to balance making art and teaching elementary school art! She is mainly a painter but loves playing around with drawing, weaving, printmaking, watercolor, and other media. She gets inspiration from old and new: experimenting with new materials and techniques as well as from art history and traditional oil painting techniques.
