"Everything alive is constantly changing in a process of growing and dying.
I'm enthralled with capturing moments of life and expressing the fleeting beauty I see into a permanent medium. A sort of memorial to the brilliance of life."
Becca Farmer has been an artist since she was a child. The daughter of an Air Force pilot, she grew up overseas and was influenced at a young age by cultures rich in art.
In college, she studied design and composition under Chris Magadini, internationally acclaimed illustrator. She enjoyed a career, for many years, as a graphic artist. She also thrived in a career at the Arizona Legislature as an executive assistant to state representatives. A member of the reputable Arizona Artists Guild, Becca's love of nature and keen curiosity for the mechanics of life gives her a distinctive voice in her art. She explores places that are on the edge of what is visible, compelling the imagination to take a deeper look. "I love capturing moments of brilliant beauty and expressing it through my paintings. I use acrylic paints to interpret what I see because of their clear, crisp color and ability to develop glazed layers in the tradition of the classical masters. My passion is to create a dramatic visual experience of color, contrast and depth." Becca enjoys her grandchildren, travelling, flamenco music, hiking, kayaking and exploring the deserts and forests of Arizona with her childhood sweetheart and husband, John.
She finds her greatest inspiration for art in the beauty of nature.
