REBEKAH L. SMITH

Rebekah L. Smith Woolies


Rebekah L. Smith

Rebekah L. Smith grew up in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, a rural farming community in the Laurel Mountains. Her lifelong interest in art was enhanced by an appreciation for country antiques and folk art at home. Smith became a serious student of the Rufus Porter style and the Pennsylvania decorative painting of the 18th and 19th century. She has combined these with old surfaces to evolve her own style.

The objects Smith paints are early boxes, furniture that needs redone and early tinware. She continues the art of the itinerant limner in her wall murals, faux graining, and stenciling in homes. Locally handcrafted Brides boxes and overmantels created from early boards are available to be custom painted. Smith also does custom work for clients who have furniture and smalls that they want painted.

Each piece is Smith's own interpreted design and one-of-a-kind. She researches and studies designs in museums and antique shops, touching and looking at original surfaces. Smith strives for artistic excellence and museum quality.

She lives with her husband, Bruce and their three daughters in the Western Reserve of Ohio where they are restoring an 1838 home .
