I'm Rebecca Cook of Bellesouth Studio. I love color, whether wild and exciting or subdued and calming and to be able to transfer the color to the canvas is such a release and uplifting joy. My art centers around mixed media and collage, going where my brush takes me, using a range of mediums, adding bits and scraps of the detritus around me. Collage takes the useless looking scrap of paper and gives it importance. Texture makes one want to touch and experience the art. Mostly self-taught, I polish my skills by taking classes with successful artists from time to time.
Some of my art has been accepted for juried art shows, and I have sold many original and commissioned pieces in my local area.
I also enjoy photography, especially being out in the middle of nature and capturing the essence of the area where I live with my husband and a menagerie of cats and dogs. I hope you enjoy my art!
