BIOGRAPHY

Rebecca Weinman is an emerging artist born and raised in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Rebecca graduated cum laude with her BFA from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. During her undergraduate work, Rebecca studied at the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art in the Northwest region of France.

Rebecca’s work is greatly influenced by British figurative painters such as Paula Rego, Lucian Freud, Jenny Saville, Euan Eglow and Cecilly Brown.

“I paint people, not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be.”-Lucian Freud
