Rebecca Ellison

Rebecca Ellison has worked in a variety of visual art media, including stained glass, archival ink, acrylic, watercolour and gouache painting, oil and chalk pastel as well as exterior painted and mixed media murals. She has designed and created backdrop sets, custom mural and logo designs for fundraising galas and for schools. Rebecca particularly enjoys drawing/painting detailed ink and watercolour works on wood canvas. Many of her commissioned and purchased pieces can be found in private collections.

Rebecca combines her background in occupational therapy and work with special needs students in the CBE with her love of visual arts to promote health and wellness through the arts no matter what your age, stage or abilities may be! She believes that EVERYONE has something to share artistically…sometimes just a little encouragement is all that is needed!

Rebecca currently works as a CBE artist-in-residence and as visual arts instructor, closely linking academic curricula with custom-designed art projects. She has instructed adults and children through the Inglewood Art and Music School. Rebecca is a Level 1 Learning Through The Arts artist-educator on the CBE Artist Roster, member of the Creative Aging Calgary Society, associate member of CAIT (Creative Arts and Integrated Therapies). She has enjoyed giving back to the community through the arts: Garrison Green Seniors Community, Studio C (Mental Health through the arts), Faith & the Arts, and collaborating with Accessible Housing Calgary.
