Becka’s work explores the relationship between letting go and the need for control. She first grants herself permission to play with materials without being attached to the outcome. Shapes and textures form, and images are revealed to her.

With each piece of work she sees the struggle of the human spirit — to let go, be free, to play without boundaries versus the constraints of needing to control the details of life, interactions, and the manners in which we accomplish things.

Follow Becka on her website, on Facebook, and on Instagram @beckawatkinsart.
