BIOGRAPHY


Summary:
Becca Mulenburg is an oil painter whose primary focus is painting birds. All of her birds are painted from personal experiences. She prefers to paint birds from the wild, either from her adventures in and around her home or on her travels. The challenge of getting reference photos for her paintings while birding and enjoying the outdoors is what Ms. Mulenburg likes best. Nature is full of mystery and intrigue, and provides her with endless inspiration.

Personal Data:

Education:
Graduated from New London Senior High School, New London, WI, 1986; received a Bachelor of Science in Journalism, Honors Graduate, from University of Wisconsin, Madison, 1991.

Experience:
Becca Mulenburg is self taught. An elective college course titled Drawing I at University of Wisconsin, Madison, provided her with some insight into her potential, but a career in the visual arts was never something she considered. After graduation, Ms. Mulenburg spent nearly two decades working in the printing industry as a production artist. In 2002, she moved to San Antonio where her exploration into pottery began. She took classes under the instruction of Ms. Linda Pope at Sunin Clay Studio for a short time before moving back to Wisconsin in 2006. Ms. Mulenburg began teaching herself oil painting in 2007. Three years later, Ms. Mulenburg closed the chapter on nearly twenty years in the printing industry to concentrate on oil painting.
