About Becky Mayhew

My Background

When I was young, my favorite thing to do was art. This love never faded and I chose to attend The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Though my degree is in Graphic Design, I found "my calling" as an art teacher. My greatest reward is to see students accomplish something they never thought possible. My quote I often use is, "Most people think they can't draw; perhaps it's because no one ever taught them how." I'd love to teach you how!

My Mediums

I have several different mediums that I love to use: oils, watercolors, pen & ink, and markers, depending on the subject. My work includes a variety of styles and types, but I mostly work in a realistic style. I love to draw in any medium, paint in oils and watercolor, do calligraphy, and draw caricatures and cartoons.  

My Inspiration

I enjoy gardening in my spare time and many of my pieces are directly influenced by the time I spend working there and admiring the designs and colors.  My favorite things to paint are flowers and skies. I love capturing in my work what God has created in nature.

My daughter has been taking art classes from Becky Mayhew for 5 years. She enjoys art class immensely! Mrs. Mayhew has introduced her to many types of art media; watercolor, clay sculptures, oil painting, cartooning, etc. What makes art class so enjoyable is Mrs. Mayhew's positive attitude! She has energy and passion for sharing her love of art with her students. She is joyful and gracious. She is an encourager to all her students. She has been a blessing to my daughter!

Becky W. - Houston, PA

Becky is so patient, upbeat and knowledgeable. Not only does she share her art abilities and techniques with her students, she emotes an enthusiasm and love for art that is contagious. Our daughter Paige has blossomed as an artist under Becky, and just as importantly has gained so much of the self-confidence that comes along with developing a genuine skill. Paige has been with Becky for almost 10 years now!

Bob B. - Bridgeville, PA

Becky is always upbeat and enthusiastic when sharing her knowledge of painting. She really imparts an understanding of the basics before going on to more advanced techniques. I learned more in one class with Becky than in a whole semester at a community college course! She gives the individual attention each person needs while keeping the class interesting for everyone. I look forward to her class every week!
