Over the last three years Rebecca's art, photography, and floral design have focused on various uses and representation of cacti & succulents. Her succulent arrangements and mounted plants, biological renderings, and care & propagation photos have become a staple of her freelance work. Her photography captures the profound natural beauty of her Southwestern surroundings. She draws inspiration from her adventures where she hunts natural pattern and color in landscapes and nature.
