Rebecca (Becky) Franco was born in Havana, Cuba. She completed in the United States a BFA with Honors from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York. She was always interested in painting large and real and very influenced by the
Photo Realist movement of the 1970’s. Upon graduation she sought employment in the difficult field of Outdoor Advertising, where she got the distinction to prove herself as a competent female artist. She became the first female billboard artist to join the Sign & Pictorial Display Union. She painted billboards for fifteen years.
When digital computer imaging threatened the outdoor industry, she shifted her focus, becoming an independent art Professional gaining many painting commissions. Her paintings were featured in many publications and a Rizzoli
book called ‘Tromp L’Oeil At Home’ by Karen Chambers. Rebecca has always remained interested in the expansion and refinement of her skills. To that end, after many years as an independent art professional, in 2008 she returned to academia to attain an MFA from Queens College, New York. Rebecca’s paintings have been exhibited in a number of group exhibitions and in 2011 became a member of Soho20Chelsea gallery.
