Rebecca Stout Art
A lifelong practitioner of art, Rebecca sold her first oil paintings at age 19. Full time pursuit of artwork was set aside for a gratifying career in elementary education. Her happiest moments in the classroom are integrating art and creative writing and being inspired by the uninhibited expressions of young children. For the past 15 years Rebecca has carved out more time to focus on watercolor painting. Her favorite subjects are the ocean, animals, and children. Extensive travel, including living on a sailboat in the Caribbean has provided unique adventure and inspiration for her paintings, all with a story. The stories are being expressed also as Rebecca has become a children’s book author/illustrator. She believes that God has designed everyone with the capacity to reflect his creative nature in their own special way and hopes to continue to discover ways to express and share that nature.
