About Becky Chappell
Becky Chappell has been painting most of her life. Her mediums include mixed mediums, collage, oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, scratchboard - she loves it all! Her style is impressionistic and/or abstract, and her paintings express her love of color, light and form. She spent 15 years doing scrimshaw (etching on ivory and bone). She has taught many different classes, individuals and groups. Becky loves inspiring others to realize their creativity, and encouraging others to explore with art. Becky has an Associate’s degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Colorado, but is more attracted to fine art than graphic design. She was Vice President of Louisville Art Association for two years and had a mural business called Living Works. For Becky, her art is life-long process of growing, learning and exploring.
