Fine Art by Becky Streeter is actually a family business: Becky and her father, Paul Nelson, work together to create amazingly imaginative three-dimensional works of art. Becky has been painting since she was a little girl, but it was her father's creative genius that really put them on the map. She taught him how to construct a basic canvas, and he ran away with the concept, using several different types of materials to build the canvas: expanding foam, pieces of wire, wine cork shavings, Amazon boxes and even a bathrobe. The finished paintings often have a whimsical slant and are generally painted with bright, eye-catching colors. Becky and Paul have heard all sorts of names for their art over the years including pop art, energy art, and “wow, that really freaks me out” kind-of-art. Each canvas becomes more intricate and delicate in both construction and painting, and they are always looking forward to their next great piece.
