As a teenager, Rebecca attended boarding school in Lowell, Massachusets at Rogers Hall School. One day, Rebecca asked her art teacher if she had the skills to follow her passion and become an artist. “She told me that neither my talent nor my skills were good enough and to major in something else.” Instead she found a new outlet for her art when she majored in Theatre with an emphasis in scenery and set design.

In September 1975, Rebecca visited Santa Fe, New Mexico to attend Fiesta. She felt and instant connection to the city, saying, "It was as if I had finally ‘come home.’" She returned to New York, broke her lease, quit her job and moved to Santa Fe by December.

After having two children and a failed marriage, she met and married sculptor Gene Tobey and they began a collaboration of their artwork.

Over the years, Rebecca’s sculptures were characterized by a spiritual intensity and a style that was both sophisticated and primal. The work appeared as sleek silhouettes from afar, but when viewed up close revealed a maze  of glyphs and symbols. The sgraffito drawings often portrayed other animals, mountain ranges, human figures, symbols and geometric shapes.

Rebecca currently shows in Sedona and Prescott Valley Arizona; Vail Colorado; Cody, Wyoming and her native city of Santa Fe .
