It is also important to her to impact her community by making public art, teaching classes, and involving herself in arts organizations around Charlotte. She is currently on the board of Talking Walls Art Festival, a TAC founder, a CAL member, a YAMS member, a CLT Placemaking artist, and a volunteer of ArtPopCLT.

     She currently teaches art in Fort Mill School District as well as freelancing her own painting classes. Her original concepts impress her community subsequently being the only artist in the area experimenting with digital video and sculpture. Rebecca also brings sculpture to life by projection mapping onto its surface.  It is Rebecca’s goal to create art that pushes the boundaries of technology and sculpture.
