Since 1997, Rebecca has been a fine art and commercial photographer based in Central Florida. Now, she specializes in one of the earliest photographic methods, the historic wet-plate collodion process. This process is known for its hand-worked qualities, giving the artist a unique ability to improvise and explore forms, moods, light, and shadow.
She is currently producing a long-term project, Bodies of Water, funded by the Puffin Foundation and the Citrus County Historical Society. This traveling exhibition aims to draw attention to the need for water preservation and protection.
Rebecca was born and raised in Puerto Rico. When her family moved to Miami, Florida, she began her apprenticeship in photography and darkroom techniques. Rebecca studied photography, music composition, and clarinet at Bennington College in Vermont, where she earned a Bachelor of Art. She studied with the virtuoso clarinetist and composer Harold Seletsky, enhancing her classical training. She continued her education at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, receiving a Master of Fine Arts with a photography concentration.
