Artist Becky Leventis
Raised in eastern Washington and an Art Major at Whitman College, Becky Leventis has enjoyed living in Vancouver since 1970. During the early years she raised raised two children, along with her husband. Becky also did a lot of volunteer work, including being PTA president at Lakeshore and Columbia River schools. For 20 of those years she also owned a small business.
I’ve always drawn and painted but did not discover watercolors until the 90’s. Of all the mediums they give me the most joy. Other mediums stay put on the paper or canvas, however water colors mix on their own accord, often creating unbelievably beautiful colors.
A member of both the Society of Washington Artists and Southwest Washington Watercolor Society, Becky Leventis illustrated two children’s books, won some awards along the way, and currently teach painting at several area retirement facilities. Now, Becky enjoys teaching others this fun and enjoyable hobby.
