Rebecca (Becky) Kubica was born in 1988 and joined the Arts of Life in 2013. A true storyteller, Turner creates artistic narratives- often with herself as the featured protagonist. Rooted in connection and memory, Kubica’s work is a reckoning with personal life, past experiences and pop culture.
“Colors are important for my work. I work hard. Moving shapes. I’m looking around at what happened in the good old days.”
Kubica is methodical and tender in her making. She can often be seen with her eyes mere inches from her work, lost in the flow of her artistic expression. This care and attention to detail is evident throughout her body of work. Fluid watercolors and diligent shades of marker create the setting, as Kubica invites her viewers into her latest scene.
“People love looking at me in my drawings. You know what I mean? I feel when you look at me. I love being an artist and making own pictures of whatever I want. More pictures of myself. My future life.”
