Hello! I'm Becky, owner of Becky Schultea Design & Illustration. My creative endeavors have spanned over 4 decades so far and have included everything from oil painting with my Mom at 12, to product development for a large Christian gift manufacturer, then t-shirt/artwear designing in the 80's and 90's, plus freelance illustration and church mural painting sprinkled throughout. In between all the designing and illustration, I honed my business skills in real estate sales, then in corporate training and communications for IBM for 10 years. Finally, after being outsourced from my corporate position, I found my way back to my true passion - creating sweet inspirational artwork for licensing to giftware, partyware, stationery, (and now stamp!) manufacturers throughout the marketplace!
Though skilled in a variety of media including acrylics, watercolor and colored pencil, digital illustration is my major mode of artistic expression these days. Always joyful, whimsical and encouraging, my designs express my faith in God and His purpose for us all. When I'm not working on art licensing projects, I love to shop at garage sales, decorate, repurpose, and craft with vintage goodies, plus I am a part time painting instructor at a local painting studio. I make my home in a little cottage in The Woodlands, Texas (north of Houston) with my sweet husband John and precious little Pek-a-Poo Maddie. To learn a bit more about me and to keep up with my decorating adventures, creative meanderings, and art licensing news, I invite you to read my blog, Just Bee 'n Me, follow my Just Bee 'n Me Facebook page, and get inspired by my pinning adventures on my Pinterest Boards!
