A little bit about Rebecca...
Rebecca Merle is a warm, spirited, and versatile performer with deep sensitivity and a clever wit that make her distinctive. Born and raised in the Midwest, she began performing in Equity theaters as a young child. Her childhood was complex providing the innate impetus for creativity. When she discovered the performing arts, improvisation, and writing, she discovered an exciting world to invest her energy. Rebecca's work and interests, also, include painting, photography, film & video, and music. The result is about process for Rebecca.
As a performer, camaraderie comes naturally, Rebecca sees work with other artists as an opportunity for creative synergy. She knows many faces both behind and in front of the camera from her work in film, television, and commercials throughout New York, on the East coast, and around the US over the years. She is as comfortable on the city streets as she is in the studios. She is, also, continually writing - whether jokes, anecdotes, lyrics, and poems, or concocting ideas for development into larger bodies of work.
Rebecca is grateful to live among the culture of New York City. Between work and projects, she's reading, writing, singing, dancing, painting, drawing, mingling, shooting hoops, generating new ideas, experiencing new work, exploring the city, silently observing, and, when possible, enjoying peace & quiet at home. Simple things such as laughter, shared empathy, and on a larger scale - individual and community empowerment - can shift the direction of the world. Rebecca has a deep desire to make a positive impact and bring hope to people from all walks of life through her creative endeavors.
Her volunteer experiences include child literacy programs - SAG-AFTRA Foundation's BookPALS program for underserved communities & PencilPALS. She would like to acknowledge the generous impact of NYPL libraries on her growth and development as a person and artist.
It takes a lot of positive people for an artist to exist & grow, so thank you very much for stopping by. Your support is genuinely acknowledged and appreciated!
