About the Artist
Rebecca Sexton Larson attended college at the University of South Florida in Tampa and graduated with a degree in Fine Arts (painting) and Mass Communications (photojournalism). After working with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office and the Moffitt Cancer Center as a medical photographer, Sexton Larson decided to dedicate herself full time to a career as a fine art photographer, creating large hand- painted black and white pinhole photographs. She has since received Florida Individual Artist Fellowships for her work in 1998, 2002, and 2008 and an Artist Enhancement Grant from the State of Florida in 2006. In 2005, she was commissioned by the City of Tampa to be Photographer Laureate for a year. Sexton Larson has curated, lectured, and exhibited nationally and internationally at various art institutions and organizations. She also has work in a range of significant collections throughout the country including Polaroid; the Progressive Corporate Art Collection; Graham Nash (of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young); Cassilhaus at Chapel Hill, NC; Palace of the Governors, Santa Fe; the New Mexico Historical Museum; the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL; the Candela Gallery, Richmond, VA; and the Tampa Museum of Art.
