about the artist
Each of Rebecca Whitaker's wall hangings is an invitation to be present, to discover self, and to experience the joy of being. As a self-taught fiber artist, Rebecca considers her work to be a meditative practice, one that allows her to surrender in a symbolic way, finding that the beauty and meaning in each piece intuitively unfold as she steps out of her mind and into her heart, trusting the materials and her hands to guide her.
Frequently inspired by patterns in nature, Rebecca’s work focuses on earthy color tones and textures, using fiber materials such as wool and cotton. She often seeks to reflect certain aspects of the landscapes surrounding her collector's homes. In this way, Rebecca intricately weaves meaning and memory into texture and color, inviting her audience to step with her into the now through a visual and tactile experience.
Rebecca's handwoven wall hangings, both small and large scale, have been statement pieces in private residences and public spaces around the world.
