Rebecca May Verrill
Rebecca May Verrill is a native of the western foothills of Maine where she first developed her love of crafting objects from the natural world. She learned the folk tradition of basketry while living in Taos, NM where she lived for 10 years primarily working with clay. Influenced by strong craft traditions in the southwest and harvesting wild red willow along the banks of the Rio Grande to craft vessels of a different sort, Rebecca easily added basketry to her creative practice. She received her Master of Fine Arts from SUNY New Paltz in 2013 and currently maintains a studio practice in Portland, ME, where she teaches the occasional workshop, exhibits work regionally and nationwide.
