About the artist
Rebecca Jack, an intuitive painter, creates vibrant, figurative works that highlight the beauty of imperfection through visible layering, expressive brush work and mark-making. Her figures are bold, yet vulnerable, exuding a quiet confidence and self-reflective quality. Jack’s painterly style, use of line, exploration of color and shape are defining elements in her work. Her paintings offer a peak into the imaginative world of the subject’s deepest thoughts and feelings. Catching moments of truth where no one is looking. Abstracting interior and exterior spaces in conjunction with the figure are common themes she uses to investigate and ponder the inner world of a person. Approaching her work thru the lens of spatial constructs and human nature, in essence, Jack is a “soul painter”.
Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, Rebecca is a self-taught artist. Coming from an artistic household, Rebecca has been painting and drawing all her life. She has a degree in Interior design from the University of Tennessee. After many years as a designer, she left her design career to pursue her art full time.

She resides in Atlanta with her husband Lars, their son Leif and hound dog Elvis.
