Rebecca Rosen Charon has her BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. She has been working as a freelance Graphic Designer while also continuing to produce fine art. In moving to Hawai‘i in 1996, and settling at The Art Farm, she found inspiration and the right environment to further her art.
Rebecca has a love for color, and likes juxtaposing realism with freer more stylized elements. She also has a passion for abstract designs in the form of patterns. These designs have become a visual language similar to that of many aboriginal cultures whose one way of communicating is in the form of symbols and patterns used on textiles, in tattoos, on ceramics, etc. Here in Hawai‘i she has explored the hawaiian symbols on tapa, tattoos and petroglyphs incorporating them with her own language into her work.
