Welcome to the first episode of I Like Your Work! In this episode, we meet, Rebecca Sargent, an artist living in Dayton, Ohio. Rebecca is a painter and also the program director at a non-profit art center where she works with students to give them a creative and productive outlet.
We discuss how we both fell in love with painting while in our early twenties in Italy, road tripping through the rustbelt to find and explore forgotten spaces, and how her dreams and anxieties inform her work.
Rebecca also talks about her work as the program director at an art non-profit and the impact she has had on students, and the students on her. Bottom line, she is an incredible human being who isn’t just a great artist but also a positive force in her community. You can see her work on her website www.rebeccasargent.com and on instagram at becsargent. She also has work up in Boston right now at MUSA Collective. The show is up until Sept 22.
