Daughter of an artist
and a musician, Rebecca Arnoldi grew up immersed in
Rebecca’s early years were spent in rural Connecticut, in
urban culture of Boston, and in wild nature of Cape Cod. The family
also traveled through Europe and Israel. Fascinated by people,
plants and animals everywhere, Rebecca observed and drew everything
from blue jays, to camels, to zebras at the zoo.
The fascination and drawing continued. Rebecca completed a B.A. in
Painting, studied art in Spain, attended an artist’s
residency in Israel and more recently studied at the New York
Studio School and the Fine Art Work Center.
Rebecca also completed a B.A. in Language & Culture (at UC
Santa Cruz) and an M.S. in Environmental Education (at Antioch New
England). She has worked as a Spanish language
interpreter/translator, naturalist park ranger, environmental
educator, and leads art/natural history workshops (for Harvard
University and others).
Rebecca Arnoldi’s art explores the visual language, essence,
and life energy of natural forms. A recent MFA recipient from Mass
College of Art, Rebecca has shown her work in galleries and museums
in Boston, Provincetown, New York City and Israel.
