Rebecca Chamberlain’s career as a fine artist and private art instructor began in 1995. She has taught workshops and classes in private studios, museums, libraries, arts organizations and educational cooperatives in Kentucky, Maryland, South Carolina, and Georgia. With a deep appreciation for Italian Renaissance, Symbolist, and Pre-Raphaelite art, her work is inspired by artists from these movements. She is also inspired by art from the Golden Age of Illustration, Botanical Studies, and Contemporary Realism.  Rebecca’s subjects are primarily portraiture, figurative, and still life. She works in graphite, charcoal, Faber-Castell polychromos colored pencils, ink and oil. Her original works can be found in private collections throughout the United States. In 2010 five of her illustrations were published in the book, Bluegrass Drawing Society, and in 2014 she illustrated the children’s book, Jayden the Gentle, Tall and Gangly Giraffe, written by Lisa Farr Sharon. Rebecca wrote and illustrated the book, Maralee and the Turtles of the Sea, which was published in June 2018
