Rebecca Zeiss studied painting and drawing originally at the University of Michigan's School of Art where she had the opportunity to study photography under Phil Davis and shifted the focus of her work. At Central Michigan University she continued to research photography as a tactile form incorporating alternative processes with painting and printmaking into the work and exploring the surfaces created by the mixing of the media. Her work ranges from elongated translucent vertical images on kozo and silk materials to small intimate images often referencing dreamlike visions. Many of her images include domestic space and reconsider the child experience. Her work is included in private collections, museum, university and corporate collections.
Rebecca is an adjunct Instructor in Photography at the University of Michigan Flint.
