Artist Rebecca DeGroot finds her inspiration in the living things and objects that she interacts with regularly. Simple things like insects or even coffee cups send her scrambling for her notepad to transform her imagination into possible projects. Since graduating in 2014 with two bachelor’s degrees in Art Education and Sculpture and Functional Art, Rebecca has spent her time juggling her full-time career as an art educator, her passion for woodworking, and a blossoming career as a tattoo artist.

Rebecca started woodturning with her father at a very young age. Dad’s rule was simple, if she could stand on the bucket and reach the lathe, he would teach her how to turn. That is exactly what he did, and at five years old Rebecca spent her evenings in the shop turning honey dippers with her father. Once she began school her efforts and energies were dedicated to her studies and woodworking took a back seat. While attending Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Rebecca found herself back in the school’s basement woodshop. Fifteen years had passed since she had spent any significant time in a woodshop, and she took back to it like reuniting with an old friend.
