Born in Cheshire, Becky moved to the west coast of Wales in 2010 after graduating from University with a Creative Arts degree.
Becky is a ‘plein air’ painter, preferring to take her paints and easel out into the landscape to work directly from life, working through a telescope to capture wildlife in the field. Becky loves the challenge and excitement of working from life and the freshness and spontaneity it brings to her work.
“I find the more senses I engage in the process of creating a painting – the richer the experience. A direct correspondence with nature affords me the opportunity for clarity and economy, encouraging risk and spontaneity in my approach. Every painting represents a unique period spent in the landscape – a sensory record and personal response to a specific mood, time, and place.”
