Prior to shifting to gallery work in 2011, Rebecca was very well known for her career in Illustration under the name Rebecca Guay. Her work has been published in multiple graphic novels (DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics), book covers and children's books for most major publishers, as well as on hundreds of cards painted for Magic: The Gathering. She has been a guest artist/speaker at Rhode Island School of Design, University of Massachusetts, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Fordham University NYC. As well as a guest instructor at Pratt Institute and a guest artist by invitation to shows and events in Australia, France, Japan, and Spain.
Rebecca's class will focus on artists wishing to aim toward gallery driven goals. Unlike other classes in SmArt School, which welcome digital and traditional methods, she requests that people signing up for her class work primarily in traditional media.
