Rebecca Schwarzberg

Rebecca Schwarzberg is a smallscale figurative sculptor and doll maker. She lives in Buffalo but escapes into nature every chance she gets, incorporating the beauty of both of these worlds into her artwork. Rusted metal, broken glass, call to Rebecca from the curb of her neighborhood on Buffalo’s West Side. Just as strongly, call the tree roots, seed hulls, rocks, moss, and mushrooms found while hiking in the many natural areas around Western NY. Everything is dragged back to her studio and used to create her art.


Formerly a maker of children’s dolls, her fine art has grown out of this practice and is still evolving.


Rebecca’s father was a figurative sculptor. He chiseled into large pieces of wood and stone in the backyard and his lifesize figures loomed large inside her home.  She grew up in a world where the human figure was used to tell her father’s story and she continues to carry forth this legacy in her own artwork today.


Expressing the experiences and struggles of the human journey is what She has been called to do. Rebecca documents her story of becoming and the constant cycle of growth and transformation.


Rebecca Schwarzberg studio is located within Buffalo Arts Studio which is home to a community of 30 artists and two art galleries. Since leaving teaching in 2020 to focus on artmaking, Rebecca has exhibited at The Gallery at Dunede and Buffalo Arts Studio. She is a member of Hallwalls Buffalo and The Buffalo Society of Artists.
