Having spent time on both sides of the United States, Rebecca Degagne now resides in Corvallis, Oregon, where she works as a scientist and an artist. She earned a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and Ecology from Juniata College (PA) in 2003, studying ceramics under noted potter and writer, Jack Troy. Her sculptural ceramics explore humanity's relationship with the natural world, in addition to the interplay between form and function and art and science.
Rebecca earned her Master of Science degree from Humboldt State University in 2007 and subsequently taught courses in the geospatial sciences (GIS, remote sensing, and cartographic design) at College of the Redwoods and HSU. Currently, she works for the Conservation Biology Institute, mapping sensitive species and landscapes. Her artwork has been exhibited regionally in the Willamette Valley and nationally in California, Kansas, Texas, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Missouri, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
