Rebecca Hoyle is a modern impressionist oil painter. Her canvas is a visual expression of her connection to light and how it impacts environmental elements and landscapes of her local and travel experiences.  “Nature can be breathtaking and I strive to capture and share the experience through visual expression of that moment with my audience.” Rebecca often paints plein air and works from her photographs as inspiration for her paintings. They evolve over time through the use of defined strokes and interaction of bold colors.

Rebecca earned a Bachelor's Degree in Art and Design with a minor in Architecture from North Carolina State University.  She went on to earn a Master's Degree in the Art of Teaching Art Education at East Carolina University and was an art instructor for 8 years. Over the past 15 years, her art has evolved and expanded into different mediums, with the main focus in oil paintings.  She was selected to participate in a summer contemporary painting class at the Art Institute of Chicago, which further instilled a strong passion to study under and collaborate with other professional artists. Hoyle’s work has been shown at the “Eye Level Art Gallery” and the “Ellis Nicholson Gallery” in Charleston, South Carolina.  Her paintings were also featured in a contemporary painting show at the Art Institute of Chicago.
