Rebecca Sipper, a Georgia native, is currently an active studio artist in the Savannah area and operates Retrofied, an independent handbag company. She also teaches printmaking locally at the Telfair Museum of Art and Savannah’s Clay Spot. Her undergraduate work includes Berry College and Oglethorpe University. She received a B.A. in Studio Art and a B.A. in Psychology from Oglethorpe University.
Rebecca is best known for her paintings of animals and nature. Her canvas ranges from porcelain to birch to just about any surface she can find. Environment heavily influences her work. Strong lines and flowing geometric shapes overlap to tie everything together, just like in life.
Her paintings, ceramic vessels, fibers and printmaking together and separately celebrate time and place along the Georgia Coast. Her work celebrates history and tradition combining past and present with love of nature and people in beautiful wall pieces and utilitarian art. Her objective is to translate her own personal experience along the Coast, through narrative imagery on the utilitarian form.
