In 1991, life would radically change for Rebecca Bucci and her husband Michael. Both would begin a period of intense spiritual experiences, accompanied by ceaseless creative outpourings in "inspired" writings, art and music.
This period, which the couple told the world was "a Sabbatical", brought to an end any "conventional" involvement with the world. The couple closed their public relations business saying: "God will provide..." God provided.
Living together in a small townhouse in the middle of congested, affluent, sophisticated Cherry Hill was not a conflict, for the home became a retreat, a quiet, peaceful, almost monastic habitat where work and Spirit coincided.
Rebecca always saw the interconnectedness between her art and Michael's books and music. Six of nine books were self-published with pencil illustrations by her. She wrote the Introduction to the series.
A sampling of pencil sketches from the first six Cerithous books are shown here.
From 1991 to 1998, in addition to completing hundreds of watercolours, Rebecca Bucci created over 800 pencil illustrations for the Cerithous books.
