La Quinta Arts Festival artist Rebecca Molayem is an expressionist artist with a unique, whimsical, captivating style. Using vibrant colors often layered on top of each other with many brush strokes, she creates a sense of movement and dance throughout her paintings.
Her greatest sources of inspiration are family, friends, people she meets and places she likes to visit. She embraces subject matters that depict sweet moments in life. Perfect for summertime, her bathing beauties celebrate the season of travel and joyful gatherings with friends.
Rebecca graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1984 and was an active graphic artist and illustrator for 15 years. While working as an illustrator and raising a family, she started sculpting in clay. Then, she decided to share her creative and expressive style with the world by transferring her images from clay onto canvas.
Rebecca’s images are filled with voluptuous, exaggerated characters with expressive body languages. In Girl in Yellow Dress, the subject’s piercing gaze and dynamic color palette create an arresting result. While reminiscent of a classic impressionist portrait, the girl’s hip style and posture resonate with contemporary flair.
“I express feelings of happiness and joy through my paintings and believe my work is a source of strong compassion, opening doors to exhilarating journeys through color and composition.”– Rebecca Molayem
