Becky has always been interested in oil painting, art and architecture, but “life” put her ambitions on hold until recently retiring. Now numerous travels to Europe have enabled her to acquire the true feeling of Provence and Tuscany. Enjoying the same light in the south of France that drew the masters such as Monet, Cezanne, and Renoire, she captures the brightly painted shutters, the lavenders fields and the sunflowers of that special area. The medieval villages of St Paul de Vence, Gourdon and Eze to mention a few, offer many architectural opportuntities for stunning paintings. Had she been born in another time she would have designed the medieval villages of France, but now recreating their distinct beauty on canvas is her way of preserving the past as well as her holiday memories. Being fluent in the French language has been a huge benefit while traveling throughout France and Europe.
Becky teaches a weekly class in the Dallas area and gives demonstrations and workshops throughout the US and France.
Becky frequently conducts a 2 morning workshop at Lavendou Bistro Provencal which includes a specially prepared lunch.
