Rebecca Peterson has a BA in Studio Arts from Carthage College and has been creating since the age of 5. Imagery and story has always held significance in her personal work, and she hopes to share that pull with her students. New to teaching, Rebecca has shown in several Wisconsin and Illinois galleries over the past 9 years and is now teaching with the Artisan Guild of Southern Illinois.
Rebecca’s passions are watercolors on plastics, silk painting and crocheting while keeping track of her half-feral cats. She believes that everyone should try things at least once, if only to have the experience.
