Rebecca Trimble is an accomplished fine artist, furniture artist and internationally recognized art teacher who has recently opened Urban Designs, a shop in Julington Creek. The shop is a wonderland for those looking for beautiful and interesting pieces as well as unique paintings, and other wall art for their homes.
Rebecca along with other vendors whose work is available in the store use various painting techniques to re-imagine wood furniture, taking that boring old oak table and transforming it into a stylish art piece with gray legs and a refinished wooden top. There are many pieces already in the shop but Urban Designs will custom-make farm tables or reinvent pieces you have in your home.
Rebecca is also the mother of four children and the wife of a Navy Officer. “We have recently moved here from the Pacific Northwest and I have to say I am in love with Florida, but especially this area of St. John’s. I am a huge fan of the weather (yes even in August!) and the people in this area are simply lovely."
After their move, Rebecca, who has years of experience in all areas of painting and is the author of a series of art technique books and DVDs called Rebecca's Collections, continued painting furniture and murals, later deciding to open a store front to offer local customers a full spectrum of services. “We also paint kitchen and bathroom cabinets and, as a certified home stager, we offer home staging and design help”.
Rebecca uses the artist’s eye when it comes to painting furniture and says her process involves viewing a piece and then imagining how she wants to recreate it with paint. As a well-known landscape artist who teaches painting classes across the US and Canada, Rebecca says she has always been an artist, never without a paint brush in her hand. Her recent passion is for Tuscan inspired landscapes with their vivid colors and beauty. She also enjoys Impressionism art for its color and movement. Her favorite piece is Edvard Munch, The Scream.
Rebecca offers painting classes at Urban Design for the experienced and novice alike.
