The artwork I am creating today is a visual representation of personal experiences, thoughts and emotions. Growing up in Denver, Colorado allowed for frequent visits to the Denver Art Museum, where I was exposed to the paintings of Albert Bierstadt. Bierstadt’s work left me completely spell bound, which inspired me to create work that would have the same powerful effect on people. The passion I had to create led me to Gunnison, a small, remote mountain town in Colorado. Gunnison is home to Western State University where I received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Painting in May 2016. After graduation, I returned to Denver to focus on the Colorado gallery scene. In May of 2018, I joyfully became Mrs. Griffith, which moved me to Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. I continue to create personal paintings in hopes to encourage and deeply connect with others.
Rebekah’s work was featured in our Spring 2019 Group Exhibition.
