Rebecca - " I use various forms of printmaking combined with digital media to build images and create environments which interplay between the real and the fantastical. My inspirations come from the natural world and its bounties, indigenous cultures, history and travel"

Rebecca is currently working on various design projects and some collaborations. She is open for commissions for hand painted walls.
