My Story

  


Peace.  Beauty.  Light.

Three aspects that Rebecca Zook consciously incorporates into her paintings. As a native Texan, she grew up with an appreciation of the unique beauty that Texas offers. Wandering the trails, playing in the creek near her childhood home and befriending every creature she encountered, Rebecca found a true love in nature. This connection is something that’s remained a part of her throughout her life and this love of the landscape and its inhabitants is expressed through each brushstroke.

“I’m drawn to Texas’ plentiful native grasses in particular. Watching the wind weave patterns through them and the gentle swaying provide me with a much needed calm. I stand among them and am reminded of the ocean. Great waves roll across the fields. Seed heads catch the sun and glow like breaking spray.”

The sky also holds great fascination. She has photographed clouds for close to 12 years, amassing a huge collection of source material with the intent of creating a series of paintings. She finally began that ongoing project in late 2015.

“If you stop and watch the sky for any length of time, you realize how quickly it transforms itself. Clouds spring to life, change shape and dissipate right before your eyes. Sunrises and sunsets are the most dramatic. Almost second by second the colors grow and fade. My paintings capture one brief moment of that perpetually changing beauty.”


About the Paintings
Rebecca works primarily from her own photographs, never leaving the house without a camera. Although she has a professional-level digital Nikon, most of her cloud source material was shot with a small, and rather old, pocket-sized Cannon that has stood the test of time.

"I have a camera with me always. You never know when the light is going to be just perfect or when you are going to happen upon a unique scene worthy of painting. Sometimes it's difficult for me to get to my intended destination when driving because I keep seeing "paintings" along the way."

Gessoed panels that she prepares herself are Rebecca’s preferred painting surface. Her acrylic technique often involves many overlapping layers of thin washes of color. She finds this better conducive to capturing the unique qualities of light. You can follow Rebecca on Facebook to view the in progress photos of many of her paintings.

She is represented by Dutch Art Gallery in Dallas, Texas and Your Private Collection Gallery in Granbury, Texas.

 
More About the Artist
Rebecca is a true creative; excelling in many forms of expression. She was a Senior Graphic Designer, Photographer and Copywriter for an ad agency for close to 20 years. She still freelances this type of work. Her writings have been published in book form, online blogs and in magazines in subjects ranging from art-related to chronic illness.

Though it doesn't define who she is, living with a rare, genetic illness has in many ways shaped who she has become. Rebecca strongly advocates and spreads awareness for those with chronic illness through published writings and her art. She illustrated the children's book, "A Zebra Tale", for the Immune Deficiency Foundation. This is a free publication to help children understand the diagnosis of a Primary Immune Deficiency, which she also has. Rebecca doesn't let the challenges that come with chronic illness keep her from living a happy, fullfilling and productive life.


Additional interests include continuing to build and care for her (mostly) Xeric-themed garden. Her life is filled with joy from her many dogs, cats and parrots. All rescues. Sharing her love of animals, nature and much more is her husband, Ed, whose undying support in all her endeavors is greatly appreciated.
