A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, Rebecca Kunz was born and raised in hills of Oklahoma. "I grew up with the notion that art was essential to life. I always felt the urgency to create, and noticed early on how elated I felt while creating. Following the artful way was the only path I knew to take".
She received a BFA in Painting from the College of Santa Fe, during which time she fell in love with the subtle beauty of Northern New Mexico and decided to make it her home.
She now lives in the foothills of Santa Fe with her family, where she is a painter and mixed media artist. "As I move through life, I find that everything I see and experience is a work of art, each moment a composition. The delicacy of living within nature shapes and inspires my work, where each line becomes a reflection of and response to natural beauty".
