Rebecca Brand, French impressionist artist, chef, TV show host and producer, You Tube content producer of art and cooking channels.
Rebecca currently resides in Santa Barbara, California.
She has held Dinner Party Art Class at her home for many years. From this small business of providing a dinner party then teaching art afterwards, Rebecca has created an artist community of over 100 students that are now her friends. Students will take her class and pop in and out as their lives permit, learning a little more about painting each time and connecting with other students and forming friendships along the way. Rebecca wanted to document this special gathering and so filmed the dinner party art class and a reality TV show was created that now airs all over California called "Rebecca Brand's Dinner Party Art Class".
Rebecca studied French Impressionism intensively under the direction of Renee Amitai, a former student of Picasso. Has studied privately with Amitai and at art institutions in the Los Angeles area. She has attended various workshops and courses in a variety of media including oil painting, watercolor and printmaking. Rebecca has shown in many juried shows in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties and is a member of numerous art societies and organizations.
Rebecca has taught elementary aged children French impressionist oil painting and cooking for years in after school programs as she was raising her three sons. Rebecca is a chef for charities, was an executive chef for a restaurant and cooks for her own parties.
Rebecca paints all subjects - landscapes, seascapes, still lifes, portraits and street scenes and is often commissioned to paint views of particularly special significance for clients, i.e., their home, ranch, property, gardens, favorite vineyard, balcony views, and vacation spots. Rebecca often paints extremely large pieces, which she sells or leases.
Ranch and Country Magazine has placed Rebecca's paintings on their cover numerous times, and Rebecca's work has been showcased in many newspapers and magazines over the years, as have been articles written about Rebecca, her art and teaching.
At the Anderson School of Business at UCLA, Rebecca was a winner in the International Moot Corp Competition, competing against the top 40 business schools in the world. She was written up in the Wall Street Journal in 1992 for her company, Wine Exporting Service, which emerged out of her love of wine and the wine industry.
