Becca Cook

Becca Cook is a folk artist from the Islands off of the coast of Savannah, GA. Becca's mediums include but are not limited to needlework, lacemaking, dollcrafting, performance, installation, and painting.

 

Cook also manages Escape Savannah, an art collective and escape room experience. She teaches private lessons in crochet and lace making, and also volunteers her time to crochet and knit with dementia patients as a form of art therapy.

Art, says Becca Cook, “is being alive. I don’t know how not to create. I’ve never had an artist block. Every waking moment, my brain is churning out creativity, even when I am sleeping I am dreaming my own universe that I want to share. I love to be involved within my creative community of like minds to build puppet shows, musical performances and art installations and much more. To me art is not a just a career, art is my way of life, everyday. To play, to bring joy, ideas, thoughtfulness, and a community of care is what I strive to do. Art is a natural fit, I could not imagine doing anything else."

Becca's work can be found at Escape Savannah and here in her online shop. For doll commissions please contact Becca directly at info@beccacookart.com
