_Rebecca Socia, Illustrator
Thank you for visiting my web page. I received my Bachelor's degree in Fine Art with an Illustration emphasis from Grand Valley State University.
I am a nature-lover, a hard worker, and a generous friend. I am making efforts to make my inspirations into creations on a more regular basis.
Here is my design entry for the CMU Public Radio 40th anniversary t-shirt design contest. I enjoy so many NPR programs that is was hard to depict visually. Full-sized image in the right column.
Exploring Art Quilting
I enjoyed the AQS quilt show in Grand Rapids in August 2012 and also took two classes with art quilter Katie Pasquini Masopust: Painted, Stitched canvas, and Ghost Layers. Check out her website at http://www.katiepm.com
Current building project
Much of my time last summer and fall went into the building of a large pole barn at the back of our property. This is just one of the reasons I am also known as "Becky the Builder."
