About Becky Christenson

Becky Christenson walks the land in Madison County and around Beaver Lake, Arkansas and takes in the glorious nature she is surround by there. She keep visuals in her mind of things she see and those images then inspire paintings, sculptures, or some other clay item. Nature also motivates her to create art that can be displayed in the outdoors. Maybe it is a free standing sculpture created with pieces from nature impressed into the clay that ends up dressing up a flower bed. In the end, it is creating art inspired by nature that Christenson has to do.
