Artist: Rebecca Marcussen
Rebecca Marcussen is a pastel, acrylic, and watercolor artist whose inspiration is the beautiful coastal landscapes of Georgia. She is a graduate of Eastern Illinois University with a BA and MA in painting and ceramics and has retired after 16 years of teaching.
"The power of a mark, mark-making, drawing I believe it is an artist's most powerful tool. It's the expression of oneself -the ability to direct others. From the cave paintings to modern man, the importance of marks is under-recognized by many but is a force in mankind. I have found soft pastel medium allows me to express my appreciation of the coastal area of Georgia. The landscape and wildlife have become my favorite subjects, and the love of the pastel medium helps me share my feelings."
A selection of Rebecca's works are currently on display at CorkHouse Savannah Gallery.
