BIOGRAPHY


Summary:
Becca Mulenburg is an oil painter whose focus is painting wild birds from personal experiences. All of the birds she has ever painted, she has seen in person.

Personal Data:
Born in New London, WI. Currently living in Duluth, MN.

Education:
Graduated from New London Senior High School, New London, WI, 1986; received a Bachelor of Science in Journalism, Honors Graduate, from University of Wisconsin, Madison, 1991. Before that, Ms. Mulenburg put herself through college by working countless jobs (when college was more affordable, mind you), starting with delivering the morning newspaper on her bicycle in the fourth grade. She has bussed tables, bartended, worked in retail, data entry, marketing, sales, and many, many more.

Experience:
Self taught. An elective college course titled Drawing I at the University of Wisconsin at Madison provided her with some insight into her potential, but a career in the visual arts was never something she considered until after spending almost two decades in the printing industry. An award-winning artist, Ms. Mulenburg has sold her works worldwide.

The Duluth, MN Connection:
Becca's mother was born in Duluth and lived her very early years there before her father's employer, US Steel, transferred the family to Virginia, MN, on account of World War II.

Collectors:
Written offers considered. For a response, include an SASE. No commissions. Serious buyers only. Apologies for the old-timey method of correspondence, but it helps reduce cyber funny business. Send to: 1649 W Page St, Duluth, MN, 55811, USA. Original, small works start at $55-$75 USD sq/in. Larger works can be less, depending on the painting. For prints, please inquire. A small number of my oil paintings are available as S/N LE prints.

Thoughts from the artist:
Rarely do I show my work, even though I like to. Galleries take 40-50+% commissions. The Minnesota State Fair takes 20%. Forgive me, I've grown weary. I understand the role galleries, exhibits, and shows play within their communities. Always purchase directly from the artist when you can. If you'd like to donate my artwork to your favorite charity, please contact me to purchase one of my works. Offers accepted on NFS artwork. Your support is welcome. This website does not show the entire collection of my work.

Thank you:
Thank you to my collectors, you know who you are. I truly appreciate your support. Thank you for visiting.
