Rebecca Braziel was born in Savannah, Georgia. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2008. Her fibers background is at the core of her work creating a focus on texture, process, material, repetition and attention to detail. Another pivotal element is community engagement. A lover of collaboration, she feels that the creative process is made complete when shared with others
Rebecca moved to Houston in 2013 and has since completed a six-month residency at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, maintains a position as Teaching Artist at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, acted as a member of Box13 Artspace, received the Houston Individual Artist Grant, and exhibited work at venues such as Lawndale Art Center, Galveston Arts Center, Gray Contemporary Gallery, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
