Rebecca Zook Works

Rebecca Zook


Peace, beauty and light are three aspects that Rebecca Zook consciously incorporates into her paintings. As a native Texan, she grew up with an appreciation of the unique beauty that Texas offers. Wandering the trails, playing in the creek near her childhood home and befriending every creature she encountered, Rebecca found a true love in nature. This connection is something that’s remained a part of her throughout her life and this love of the landscape and its inhabitants is expressed through each brushstroke. Rebecca is a true creative; excelling in many forms of expression. She was a Senior Graphic Designer, Photographer and Copywriter for an ad agency for close to 20 years. She still freelances this type of work. Her writings have been published in book form, online blogs and in magazines. 



Gessoed panels that she prepares herself are Rebecca’s preferred painting surface. Her acrylic technique often involves many overlapping layers of thin washes of color. She finds this better conducive to capturing the unique qualities of light. 



“I’m drawn to Texas’ plentiful native grasses in particular. Watching the wind weave patterns through them and the gentle swaying provide me with a much needed calm. I stand among them and am reminded of the ocean. Great waves roll across the fields. Seed heads catch the sun and glow like breaking spray



Rebecca has had several successful solo shows, as well as many local and national level awards. In 2011, she was granted Signature Status in the National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society.
