Bio: Rebecca Gomez is a second-generation Californian who has been drawing and painting since she was a young child. Extreme nearsightedness that went undiagnosed until she was about twelve may have influenced her way of seeing. When she first saw the world with corrected vision, it was an unwelcome change; she had grown to prefer supplying the details from imagination.
Rebecca had classes in fine art at Chouinard Art Institute while still a high school student, and later took classes at Moorpark College, CSUN, and UCLA. She has been influenced by the work of many modern and post-modern artists, whose diversity in ways of seeing and painting have been an inspiration to her. After a successful career in business, which included graphic arts and marketing, she decided to pursue the career in fine arts that had been her desire since childhood.
