Becca Roy and her husband settled in Hyde Park many years ago to raise their family. Her formal art education began with a two year stint at Rutgers University's Mason Gross School of Art. She finished her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Johnson State College.
Roy now works primarily with pen & ink, watercolor and colored pencil. Her recent paintings have been inspired by a mixed-breed puppy that moved in with the family last year. The paintings have served as a channel for some intense and excessive "puppy love". Roy finds inspiration close to home and keeps the subjects of her paintings local and personal.
We hope you visit the Lanpher Library and explore the art of Becca Roy.
