Becca Gowdy was born in Winchester, Virginia and has always wanted to be an artist. Her hometown is filled with historical sites, beautiful mountains, and a community full of talented artists. Despite this Becca is self-taught, and quickly grew to like fantasy drawing. However, since battling depression and the ongoing anxiety from OCD, Becca has struggled to express herself with words. Art allows Becca to express the emotions of isolation and frustration and continue to be an artistic storyteller.
