Creating is my nature. Creating unique, unpredictable art that intrigues the viewer is my passion. My obsession. I have a strong desire to create art that makes people think. Makes people feel an emotional response and form a connection to my art and to be intrigued. I love to hear what people see and how the art captures their imagination. I'm not too concerned whether someone actually likes it or not, but if it's doing the other things, then I feel like it's doing its job and I have succeeded as an artist. Being the daughter of an artist, art has been a part of my entire life. I've dabbled in many different mediums throughout and in 2018, my artistic soul was finally ready to come alive.
Rebecca Horne is a contemporary abstract mixed media artist based in West Columbia, SC. Rebecca began painting as a child whose father was an artist. She had explored many mediums throughout her life such as watercolors, landscapes, flower and pet portraits in oil. In 2018, Rebecca discovered abstract art and has passionately embraced it as the style of art that evokes and liberates her creative spirit. Rebecca feels this type of art allows her to have full creative freedom when she works. Rebecca constantly searches for ideas to make her art unique and beautiful. She loves to experiment and push herself in hopes of taking her art to the next level. She prefers to create art that exercises the viewer's imagination. Her work speaks to those who like to interpret art. She enjoys hearing what people see in her art and how a piece can bring out positive emotions in them. She wants people to view her work and feel peace, happiness or energy.
