About the author

The natural world has become a singular focus in Rebecca Kinkead’s painting practice now spanning two decades. Her search for authenticity found in nature manifest through layering and scraping of oil, wax, chalk, clay and pigment. The form arrives with a sense of physical presence and vulnerability that the artist holds sacred in her work. Kinkead holds degrees in Political Science and French from the University of Vermont, and a BA in Studio Art from Minnesota State University. Her work began with clay and transitioned to paint in 1998. She has been awarded residencies at the Ballinglen Arts Foundation, County Mayo, Ireland, Baer Art Center, Hofsos, Iceland, Jentel Foundation, Banner, Wyoming, and most recently, the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont. Her work has been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally for over two decades. Kinkead currently lives and works in Cornwall, Vermont. “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” -- Nikola Tesla
