The self-taught artist paints in a whimsical folk art style which reflects the inspiration she finds in "woods, nature, the local countryside, gardens, children, animals" and even her beloved pets - two dogs, two cats and two goats. She says that "Joy is everywhere," and that her style reflects her "almost childlike curiosity and optimistic view of the world."
Becker also shows her paintings and prints at the bobbi becker gallery in New Oxford. Her work has been seen in national magazines including Country Home and Country Living, and in the gift shops of The Museum of American Folk Art and Colonial Williamsburg. More information is available at her website, www.bobbibecker.com.
