Nature and wildlife intrigue me the most. Nature’s beauty is pure and real. The process of choosing subject matter is as involved as the painting itself. I enjoy the excitement of that process, and ultimately, the creation of the vision. While I work in several different mediums, acrylic is my preference.

Becky Hyatt Rickenbaker studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta. Following graduation, she pursued simultaneous careers in both advertising and fine arts.

Her painting of a peregrine falcon was selected as the 1992 South Carolina Wildlife Federation Print of the Year; in 2015, she was invited to create a painting to accompany Josephine Humphreys’ short story in State of the Heart, South Carolina Writers on the Places They Love, Volume 2 (University of South Carolina Press); Back Off, a painting inspired by a moody tree swallow, was juried into Artfields2016®; and her illustrations and designs were selected to appear on the Lexington, South Carolina Veterans Memorial Monument.

Becky’s artwork has been featured in magazines, galleries, books and in private collections. She enjoys painting wildlife, nature, portraits and landscapes, and works primarily from her studio in Tryon, North Carolina.
