Summary:
Becca Mulenburg is a fine artist who specializes in painting birds from personal experience. All of the birds she has ever painted, she has seen in person.

Eventually, Becca embarked on a career as a full time artist. After experimenting with several subjects for the first few years, she finally settled on the path that kept pulling her towards it: birds. She has been juried into the prestigious international “Birds in Art” exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum of Art in Wausau, Wisconsin, has sold internationally, and has won numerous awards.
