Artist Rebecca Burns

...Read More


The Portland Public Library is pleased to announce an exhibit by artist Rebecca Burns in the gallery of the library August 11th through August 31st.

Rebecca Burns was born and raised in Indiana where she first studied art and discovered her passion for watercolor. She lived in Arizona for several years and studied the medium of colored pencils. She is contiually amazed at the mystical effects that are produeced when watercolor pigment touches wet paper, each application different than before. Colored pencil art intrigues Rebecca and gives her the opportunity to pain in fine detail. Rebecca now resides in Gallatin, Tennessee and enjoys expressing her art in florals, abstracts, portraits, animals, and still life paintings.
