Becky Golubski, Pastel Artist

Artist Biography


In 2006, Becky Golubski gave her first shot at painting a Westie 


while exploring soft pastels. Golubski liked the way the rich, 


vibrant and buttery stubbs of color allowed her to build layers 


of thick, fluffy fur. She quickly fell in love with the challenge to


capture expression of ‘man’s best friend’ in pastel and knew 


this was her calling as an artist.


She also paints with oils, particularly when en plein air. She 


finds a similar challenge of building texture with brush and 


palette knife to be refreshing. Plein air painting with friends 


nearby and beach vacations are fuel for inspiration when it 


comes to oils.



Golubski is a member of Spiva, artCentral, JRAC, is a Signature 


member of the Ozark Pastel Society, SMAA, and has been a 


featured artist at the Museum of the Dog in St. Loius, MO, and 


has shown at the MARC in Mount Vernon.


Exhibiting in numerous local art walks, festivals, and 


competitions throughout Missouri has led to being an arts 


advocate. In 2008, she founded the Pierce City Arts Council 


(PCAC). She is President of PCAC and coordinator of the Pierce City Arts Festival.

Becky Golubski's Artist Statement



I emphasize the small things in life through the beauty of pastels.



My theme is to capture the essence of an animal or person through 


the expression of light and shadows and their personality.
