A Note from the Artist:

Rebekah DiGiacomo

I swore that I would never be a professional artist. Born in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas to two extremely talented artists, I have been immersed in the creative process since infancy. As my siblings and I grew up, my mother filled our home with beautiful music and delicious food while my father’s brilliant sculptures inspired our adventurous curiosities.

As a student in school, I had many interests and was held to very high expectations by my mentors. Despite my deepest passions for drawing, dance, and design, I chose to dedicate myself to a rigorous, scientific course of study through high school and college in preparation for a future in medical science. My desire to create was repressed by the stress of studying for exams, working in research labs and medical facilities, writing papers and participating in seemingly endless extracurricular activities.

During my junior year at UCA, a surprise pregnancy forced me to face the hardest decisions of my life and ultimately change the plans I had made for my future. I finally took a drawing class just for fun and soon my overwhelming emotions poured out of my hands into drawings that speak to the deepest parts of my soul even to this day.

I became a parent, finished my degree, adopted my little sister, became a high school science teacher and struggled through some a very tough years. During that time, dancing was my release. Art was my escape, and quiet time with my sweet girls a sanctuary.

Those struggles seem a lifetime ago and I have finally embraced art as my destiny. I love to translate life’s challenges, disappointments, surprises, trials and triumphs into visual work to share, relate and bring joy to others. I still teach physics and chemistry to incredible high school students and share many hours with my wonderful family and friends creating happiness together. To inspire my heart, I travel and connect with people from different cultures through dancing and art.

I want to hear the stories of real people. What is yours? Tell me what ignites your soul! Maybe your heart will kindle mine and inspire my next piece.
