About Rebekah Phillips

Rebekah’s Vision

“It all began with children’s books. I remember studying them, copying the illustrations, and reading the stories aloud in various voices on my tape recorder. I always had a wild imagination, and I loved the gift of being able to escape inside a book and envision the world as I thought it could be– instead of what it actually was. This love of storytelling developed into visual tales through my artwork and then eventually through song as a singer/songwriter. I think it was a natural progression that it all came back around to books. I hope my stories have messages that are remembered, illustrations that inspire, and characters that are loved for years to come!”

Rebekah Phillips is a graduate of The Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Old Lyme, Connecticut, and has won multiple awards for her paintings. Also a published songwriter, she has recently turned her attention from writing songs to writing and illustrating children’s books. Rebekah has a heart for inspiring creativity in others through her artwork and storytelling. She feels strongly that spending quality time with developing minds is of the utmost importance. “Piper was Afraid” is the first published book of seven in her series, each using the world of animals to relate to the reader. Also, look for her second book, “Lily the Fancipoo” about a little Maltese who comes to the realization, that all you need is love!

“To be able to create is the essence of being human!”
