Illustration 3 Student Artist Research: Rebecca Green

Rebecca recently graduated from Kendall College of Art and Design with a BFA in Illustration. She loves working in many different forms, from commercial work to gallery work, to community events and workshops. Green focus lie primarily in painting and drawing, but also work as a three-dimensional artist and hope to move farther into the realm of film and stop motion. She shares a small studio in an old furniture warehouse with five other artists.

In her work, Green tries to portray the potential good that lies in everyone, in every single day.  She hopes, in the near future, to continue her efforts to combine her love for art and her love for animals, somehow bringing them together to further educate, explore, and ultimately end the exploitation of our earthling neighbors.
