Rebecca Jabs is an artist and scientific illustrator living in Manitowoc, WI. She graduated in 2016 from the Science Illustration Graduate Program at California State University at Monterey Bay, following eight years as a K-12 Art teacher in the Manitowoc Public School District. Rebecca freelances from her home studio.
Working both large and small across a variety of digital and traditional media, Rebecca’s work is an observation of nature with a hint of narrative. She gathers her inspiration through exploration of wild places, hours of birdwatching, and a desire to learn the names and relationships between the flora and fauna encountered.
