an righteous artist: rebecca ogden

rebecca ogden is rad. she lives in bellingham + is a phenomenal artist. i knew her in 8th grade + through the lovely world of myspace, she contacted me about two years ago + we've been fast friends again. with our mutual love for photography + art, we have collaborated on some artisitic pieces.

Bec speaks about her art: "My work usually consists of many layers. I strive for the viewer to look deeper, to find in the background underlying texture, color, meaning. I attempt this through using mainly paper, acrylic paint, oil pastel and a process that transfers a photographic or digital image to the canvas".

She has been inspired by some of the photographs that i have taken and used them to create lovely, AMAZING mixed media collages.

i will put up my original photo, then below it, display what rebecca has done with it, cool? COOL!
