BIOGRAPHY

After a career in Facilities Design and Project Management, Rebecca (Becky) Postell is currently developing her own personal style in watercolors and in pastels.  Inspiration for her work comes from her observation of nature and the beauty found in our surroundings.  To Becky, there is no better way to paint than in plein air, where one can truly experience the sounds, intense color and beauty of the moment.  She also paints from setting up still life of colorful objects.  She has to fall in love with something about the subject, whether it is the color, the form, the interest in the action, before she is inspired to paint it.
