Note from shop owner Hi there,

On August 5 2021 my beautiful, smart, sassy 30 year old daughter had surgery for a kidney stone. Things went terribly wrong.

After 42 days in a Surgical ICU in a medically induced coma and various adverse reactions to drugs - the hospital handed back, my beautiful daughter as a quadrapalegic. They tell us that her condition is temporary, so I am living with her and her partner to care for her and bring her back from the brink. Every day is a challenge.

I hope to be back to work on my art soon.

I look forward to hearing from you and responding to email.

Sincerely,

Rebecca

It started with a Flower Pot

Hi,
I became a professional painter in the summer of 2001. It happened by accident. I painted a flower pot and my friend came to my house, and asked where I'd bought it. When I told her that I'd painted it, she said "You should be Doing this." So, the seed was planted..... Up until then, I'd been working in the stock and bond brokerage industry and was feeling a little lost. I worked at my painting and on a trading desk (part time) for a couple of years. I learned a lot about painting. I learned that murals were not my thing after painting several (I don't like ladders!)Then I started my website, bybecca (dot) com and painted flower pots, jewelry boxes, paper mache boxes, glass and just about anything that I could paint, with some success.
Feeling that painting was not quite enough, I decided to go back to school for a degree in graphic design. During my first semester, my painting business started to grow, and during the middle of my second semester, art school and painting became almost too much. I hired an assistant, finished my semester and realized that with two kids, and an explosively growing business, something had to go, so I stopped school. Things were great! The business grew by leaps and bounds, I hired more assistants, a guy to help with the shipping and I painted, answered emails, got a child through high school and off to college, moved from NJ to Virginia, got another child into high school and began a new life. Everything was great for some years!

Then...... my children's Dad passed away two days after my son graduated from high school, which started things rolling in the opposite direction for a while. Professionally, I lost heart.

Now its been just over seven years, I've discovered that I have talent as a fluid acrylics artist who also works with epoxy resin and as a photographer. I hope you will enjoy my hand painted glassware, AND my fluid acrylics and photography.

Please ask me questions.

I'm here to help and work with you.

    I'm an accomplished painter of functional items for about 15 years. I still do that AND have begun to paint canvases with various fluid art techniques. I also take stunning landscape photos. Stop by, have a look.

Production partners

  • Our Printer

    New York, NY

    We have partnered with a company to make our fine art prints because the equipment to make them is beyond our reach at the moment. Hopefully, some time in the future we will be able to bring all of our Art Print processes in house.

  • A Printer we prefer

    Redwood City, CA

    We design a lot of things besides hand painted glassware and have decided to enlist the help of a Print on Demand company to help us get wider distribution and to present some new ideas.
