• I grew up near Buffalo New York in a family chock full of musicians, artists, and crazy people with a love for life. I started drawing as soon as I could hold a crayon and never stopped. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be an artist. To that end I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Visual Art from Messiah College with a concentration in Drawing and Illustration, and completed coursework from the Tyler School of Art. I worked for nine years as an artist and designer before returning to my first love: children’s book illustration. My experience includes illustrating children’s books, teaching art at the Chesapeake Center for Creative Arts, and publishing artwork with magazines and multiple publishing houses. I am the Illustrator Coordinator for the Maryland, Delaware West Virginia SCBWI Region, and I have mentored with EB Lewis since October 2013.

    I now live, and work, from my home studio in Maryland and enjoy spending time with my husband and four young children. To contact me please email me at: rebecca@rebeccaevans.net
