Rebecca Beayni's Artistic Expression

Rebecca has overcome typical cultural attitudes and has created, along with her family and support circle, an exciting life, working at meaningful jobs in the community, developing wonderful friendships, and doing advocacy work at the international level. . Her art work has been shown at a number of art shows over the years. Her painting called “Passion” was displayed in a juried competition called “Connections”, an international exhibition by artists with disabilities mounted by the Abilities Festival in 2003. The director of Disabilities Studies at Ryerson University chose Rebecca’s painting to be the focal point of the poster representing their edgy and activist program in radical disability studies. Rebecca has used a unique conductor style technique to send colours dancing across the canvas. She presently paints using a laser technique supported by a tracker. Rebecca is presently an “Artist in Residence” at the Centre for the Arts at Bloorview Kids Rehab in Toronto. Rebecca’s story is very inspirational and is one that the whole community can learn from. The story of Rebecca’s contribution to her community as artist, dancer, dreamer, teacher and friend is told in her new 13 minute video called “Revel in the Light.” Rebecca’s dream is to change the world into a more compassionate place where everyone’s gifts are recognized and welcomed.
