She has developed a unique style of working making full use of this versatility. Her ability to move back and forth between traditional media and current digital technology gives her mosaic work a contemporary edge while maintaining the textural richness inherent in mosaic. Rebecca received her B.F.A. from The University of North Texas. She is a member of The Society of American Mosaic Artists and a member ofThe National Association of Photoshop Professionals. She is married to a poet and together they play and create in their little east Dallas bungalow beset by three wild terriers.
