When we heard that Rebecca was having her first solo exhibition at the Catherine Ahnell Gallery just around the corner from the Studio, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to delve a bit deeper into the process that goes into creating her lovely watercolors.

On our first visit, she was just beginning the series she would eventually call Assumption, re-appropriating what the word virgin meant to its origins (FYI: having to do with a woman’s freedom and independence and knowledge of herself, and no sexual connotation at all!). With so many inspiring women around her, it’s no surprise her newsprint paper watercolors emerged into brilliant variations of the idea – always a bit unfinished, but always beautiful.

It was a very cool experience to watch unfold, so we had to share it with you…
