About the Artist
Rebecca has been using her camera and her pen to tell stories and pay bills for the last 20 years. She never considered her work as “art” until she was approached by Tabitha Gilmore-Barnes to join the AMR Open Studios Tour in 2017. It took some convincing but she decided to join the Halcottsville Hub at the Wawaka Grange for the 2018 Tour and almost fell over when she actually sold a few pieces of landscape photography. Since then, Rebecca’s work has hung on the walls of the Commons Gallery, Longyear Gallery, Walt Meade Gallery (Roxbury Arts Group) and the Cooperstown Art Association. In 2022, Rebecca inherited the job of Tour Coordinator for AMR Artists Inc. She is owner of Catskill Media and editor of her blog Mountain Girl.
Almost forcibly inspired by the images she captures with her lens, Rebecca also writes and performs poetry that demonstrates her deep love for the Catskill Mountains and the people who live here. Often the poems are combined with images, as one inspires the other. During 2022’s Open Studios Tour, she will once again be presenting her photography interwoven with poetry. This year she will be sharing the new studio space of friend and AMR Artists Treasurer, Deborah Ruggerio, in Denver, NY.
