About Becky

Born in Cheshire, Becky moved to the West coast of Wales in 2010 where she finds a vast source of inspiration in the wild landscape, from the mountains to the rugged coastline and offshore islands.

Becky is a plein air painter, preferring to take her paints and canvas into the landscape to capture the changing light and wildlife direct from observation and experience. She loves the challenge and excitement of working from a constantly changing scene, enjoying the freshness and spontaneity it brings.
