April 2024 Presenter: Rebecca Horne

We invite you to join us at our meeting on Monday April 15, 2024 for fun and fellowship.

This is our regular monthly members meeting. Hope to see you there - members and guests welcome!

This month our presenter, Rebecca Horne, will present:

The Evolution of an Artist.

Rebecca will share how she evolved into the artist she is now and how she was able to wake up her creativity. She'll share a few photos of her earlier artwork & how she was inspired to make art as well as how she learned to love making art and let go of control. She'll cover how she started making fluid acrylics and mixed media pieces. She will address how she discovered how much she loves creating abstract art and found her own unique style to become who she is now as an artist.

Rebecca believes there is no one process. She'll talk about how abstract mixed media can offer unlimited opportunities and ideas for creating art. She'll share some of the things she does that are very helpful while a piece is being developed.

Finally, she'll go over her supplies including some photos of products she uses such as mediums, embellishments and paints and she'll talk about how she uses them.

Rebecca is a contemporary abstract mixed media artist based in West Columbia, S.C. Rebecca began painting as a child whose father was an artist. She has explored many mediums throughout her life such as, watercolors, landscapes, flower and pet portraits in oil. In 2018, Rebecca discovered abstract art and has passionately embraced it as the style of art that evokes and liberates her creative spirit. Rebecca feels this type of art allows her to have full creative freedom when she works. Rebecca constantly searches for ideas to make her art unique and beautiful. She loves to experiment and push herself in hopes of taking her art to the next level. She prefers to create art that exercises the viewers imagination. Her work speaks to those who like to interpret art. She enjoys hearing what people see in her art and how a piece can bring out positive emotions in them. She wants people to view her work and feel peace, happiness or energy.
