BeccaSeda from Rebecca Silvers
A love for drawing and design can take an individual a long way. Take for example, San Francisco native Rebecca Silvers. The artist graduated in 2001 from the University of California at Santa Cruz, then went on to the Big Apple to study graphic design at Parsons School of Design. She graduated in 2004, and then proceeded to work for DMA animation as an animation assistant.
Silvers has a website that showcases her work, rebeccasilvers.com. She is experienced with textile design, illustration and the fine arts. When she draws or paints she uses both mediums of paper and canvas. She also uses silk as a medium for a lot of her work. Her illustration and design work is simply titled “BeccaSeda.” She sells her creations at beccaseda.etsy.com. What interested customers can purchase on the site ranges from scarves to Russian dolls. There are even accessories, such as bandanna's and ties. She also has a mighty impressive work history; she does freelance and has worked for distinguished publishing companies McGraw-Hill and Penguin Group. She currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
It is no doubt that Silvers has a love for color and texture; it is prevalent throughout her work. The patterns dance around each other to the beat of the canvas, or the fabric, resulting in a melodic flow. Her illustrations that can be found on her websites are so vibrant yet reserved. Viewing her work creates a warm, relaxing sensation in my spirit. At the same time, I am on edge with excitement, developing a thirst for more of her work. She is definitely an artist to keep watch for.
