Growing up in Wilmslow, Rebecca attended Altrincham Girls Grammar School before graduating with a first class degree in Fine Art from Oxford Brookes University and receiving an MA in Museum and Art Gallery Studies from Manchester University.

 

Rebecca immerses herself in art, including as a tour guide at the Manchester Museum of Art, and cites Frank Auerbach, Mark Rothko and John Constable as key influences. Her work explores the notions of memory and time and the consideration that memory can occupy a physical presence in the present.  She says that "everything I do feeds back into my painting. It takes such a long time to process ideas. Before I even think of picking up a brush I immerse myself in the subject matter."

 

Reviewing Rebecca's work in InCheshire magazine last year, Malcolm Storer wrote: "The deep emotional content of her work is testament to her dedication. This gifted artist is the real deal."​

 

Despite being only 27, Rebecca has already had three solo exhibitions - in London, Oxford and Cheshire.
