Rebecca Luncan Works Biography

Rebecca Luncan is a classically trained painter known for her eloquent portraits of people and animals. Rebecca’s work draws influences from memories of growing up on a small family farm in Ohio, the language of portraiture from the Northern Renaissance and the Dutch Golden age of painting, and the people and animals that grace her life in the Seattle area today. “I seek not only the likeness of my subject, but also the beauty particular to them.”

By using time tested techniques dating back as far as the 1500’s and using the exceptionally stable medium of oil on metal, Rebecca’s paintings have a timeless character and they will weather the tests of time.

Her portraits of people and animals have been exhibited internationally and she was recently featured in Southwest Art Magazine as an “Artist to watch”. She has won numerous awards for her artwork including an Arcadia Contemporary Award & Honorable Mention from the Art Renewal Center, Artist’s Choice Award from the International Guild of Realism 13th Annual Juried Exhibition, and 5th Place in the Portrait Society of America’s Members only competition, Animals as the Subject.
