About Rebecca DeGroodt

Rebecca's art process involves the layering of images, colors and textures to explore storytelling through visual composition. She works with mixed media --paints, photographs, ink, wax, graphite and stitch -- in combination with ephemera, vintage handiwork, fabrics, and found objects to create a single original art or decorative piece.

"I've always been a lover of history and literature -- fascinated by our stories and what they say about who we are. A worn objects's patina tells us that this item touched a life and played a role, however small, in it's story. Juxtaposing these vintage elements with related visual imagery references a time, a place or a person that was or we imagine has been. Making this type of assemblage art, I feel that I'm creating a new story from bits and pieces of the past."
