Rebecca was born an artist and has always had the desire to achieve excellence in all of her endeavors. From a very early age she was immersed in imaginative creative works such as building models of futuristic cities, paintings, sculptures and a multitude of drawings. In 1981, at the age of 17, Rebecca moved from Lake Oswego, Oregon to New York City to pursue a career in fine art and design at the Parsons School of Design. Shortly after she arrived, Rebecca began her professional artistic career assisting the renowned illustrator Antonio Lopez. At age 18, Rebecca was hired by the famed designer Halston, and began working directly with him as a fashion designer and illustrator. Subsequently, she was discovered by the Ford Models agency and traveled around the world as a top international fashion model. Rebecca worked with renowned fashion photographers such as Richard Avedon, Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel, Patrick Demarchelier and others. Rebecca is experienced in working with the major media, including international publications such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, The New York Times and Glamour, among others, as well as in television. She was featured in a national Diet Slice-Style television commercial that was shown during halftime at the 1987 Super Bowl. Rebecca also appeared in top fashion shows in New York City and Paris, France and in international advertising campaigns such as Revlon’s “The Most Unforgettable Women In The World” ads photographed by Richard Avedon.
In 1991, Rebecca left a prestigious modeling career to return to her true creative passion. She began creating a series of beautiful and universally appealing fine bronze sculptures and many commissioned works. In 1998, she began oil painting and studied at the New York Academy of Art, while creating oil paintings depicting the classic nude, equine, inspirational themes and portrait commissions for select art collectors. In 2001, Rebecca developed several digital film projects through her studies in the Film Directors Program at New York University. From 2001 to the present, she continues to create bronze sculptures, drawings, and oil paintings for private art collectors.
In 2011, Rebecca was officially endorsed and directed by the National Special Forces Association to create The National Special Forces Green Beret Memorial ® to honor the legendary elite U.S. Army Special Forces “Green Beret” Soldiers of every era and the legacy of the Special Forces Regiment.
In addition to working in partnership with the National Special Forces Association, Rebecca also worked with the U.S. Army’s 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, as technical advisors, and several Special Forces Groups, at their locations, across America to develop a concept to memorialize Special Forces Green Beret Soldiers through a series of monumental bronze sculptures.
Rebecca has also created several Special Forces “Green Beret” inspired original limited edition fine art prints. Her Special Forces themed artwork is on display at the 1st Special Forces Command (Airborne) Headquarters at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. In 2014, Rebecca was commissioned by the Green Beret Foundation and worked with the 7th Special Forces Group as technical advisors and retired Special Forces A-Team 726 Soldiers, to create an original limited edition print series to portray and honor Medal of Honor Recipient Colonel Roger Donlon, (Ret.) U.S. Army Special Forces and his A-Team 726 that served bravely in Vietnam.
