Becky was born in Cheshire in 1987. After graduating with a degree in Creative Arts she moved to West Wales in 2010. Working with an outdoor easel and pochade box, all of Becky's work happens outside. Becky loves the challenge and the excitement of working direct from life and the freshness and spontaneity it can bring. She is drawn to capturing both wildlife and the landscape and loves the painting opportunities that the changing light and weather conditions can bring.
