Rebecca Gilbert works primarily in the mediums of woodcut, wood engraving, and intaglio to translate her drawings from the natural world into floating elemental reprieves – happy places that invite the viewer to slow down, live in the moment, and find optimism in that moment. Her work is characterized by a methodical technical approach to art making and a down-to-earth recognition of her own primal cravings.
She earned an MFA in Printmaking/Book Arts from The University of the Arts and a BFA in Printmaking from Marshall University. She also studied non-toxic etching at the Grafisk Eksperimentarium in Capileira, Spain. She currently lives and works in South Philadelphia and teaches at The University of the Arts, Maryland Institute College of Art, and Fleisher Art Memorial.
