About Rebecca

Rebecca is a multimedia artist whose work encompasses painting, drawing, textile and surface design, video, photography, writing, and comics. Themes of place, history, and time run through her work; she likes built-up layers, blurry edges, and transitions of meaning and use.

As an exhibiting artist, her work has been shown nationally and placed in numerous corporate and private collections.

After finishing her MFA at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2008, she moved to Berlin for six years before moving to Portland, Oregon and then Boise, Idaho. She now lives in Minneapolis.

Projects

Rebecca is the creative director at the Field Office, which she founded in Berlin in 2008.

Since 2010, Rebecca has written for the Berlin-based publisher Gestalten, where she contributes an artist’s perspective to their books about visual culture.

Rebecca’s webcomic, aforeigncountry.com, interprets everyday life from the past as found in old newspapers and photographs.

While living in Berlin, Rebecca produced a series of video diaries that created a layered portrait of a time and place in the city.

British publisher Kyle Books used Rebecca’s photograph for the cover of their popular book, Campervan Crazy.
