Rebecca Yanovskaya is a fine artist, freelance illustrator and imaginative realist. She primarily depicts mythological stories, natural forces, and aesthetically strong characters. Rebecca’s influences include decorative arts, classical antiquities, the Pre-Raphaelites and Romantics, and theatrical costuming. Despite most artists in her genre using digital and traditional painting tools, she has made the choice to construct her pieces with ballpoint pen and gold leaf. As one of the only primarily ballpoint pen artists working in fantastic realism, her work is easy to identify. A combination of epic scope and moody atmosphere define her signature style, in what can be described as the “Art of the Sublime”. Rebecca is a graduate of the Illustration program at Sheridan College. She lives and works in Gardner, Mass.
