Becky started Becky’s Box of Puppets in 1980. From 1980-82 she performed at the Charleston Museum. Shortly after that she auditioned for the South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Roster and was approved. She has performed in schools, festivals, libraries and television. As an approved artist she has conducted residencies mainly with elementary grades. Kindergarten is her love! Although primarily self-taught, as a member of Puppeteers of America, she has traveled to many out of state festivals to learn more about her craft. She participated in a 3 week course at Washington State University and has studied with a famous director of an acclaimed puppet company from what was then Czechoslovakia. She loves bringing her hand-crafted puppets into schools to create a magical experience with students that is enriching while reinforcing lessons of the day. She feels very blessed to share her passion with the children of South Carolina.
