Rebecca Lee Peery was born in Holy City California. She moved to the Bitterroot Valley of Montana and then settled in Utah. Since the time she was a little child she dreamed of being an artist and by seventeen she began painting in oil.
She studied art at Utah Technical College and at UVSC. She’s taken many workshops from renowned artists, and has learned a great deal from painting with Linda Curley Christensen on several LDS Temple Murals. She has enjoyed teaching oil painting classes in the public school system as well as private instruction in her home studio.
Rebecca has traveled to several countries throughout the world and these experiences are reflected beautifully in many of her paintings. Her original art has been displayed in many public venues and exhibitions. Private collectors have purchased her art and some paintings also hang in permanent collections.
Rebecca says, “I have been blessed to see Gods beautiful creation through an artists eye. My hope is that I be able to convey that beauty to the viewer not only visually but spiritually.
Rebecca and her husband Hal live in Payson and between the two of them they have ten children and numerous grandchildren.
