Inspiration
Rebecca began creating artwork in her childhood. She finds her artwork therapeutic and enjoys exploring the beauty of the world through her art.  The impact technology is having on nature's beauty largely through virtual environments and digital media plays an important role to her.  Some of Rebecca's artwork also explores the beauty of g-d through the spiritual.  Her quilling pieces reflect her time spent educating and recently she has returned to sculpture (learning to bead) creating copies of nature in a world where nature is being depleted.

Materials
Whilst at school, Rebecca sculpted using mixed media every day items.  Whilst living in Birmingham, she began teaching herself to sculpt with beads through discovering a book on paper beads.  These initial sculptures used throw away printer paper to recreate nature.  More recently Rebecca has started using seed beads to create her sculpture as a learning curve to improve her technique.
Whilst at University she started experimenting with technology creating computer based artwork - everything from photography to video and there is a strong element of this in her practice to date.  She still paints with technology, recurrently creating from memory virtual landscapes in Second Life where she also has a gallery/studio there that exhibits all her art forms to date.

Techniques
Digital Painting: When digitally painting Rebecca uses Photoshop with a graphics pen and tablet.  An artwork will go through days, if not weeks, of development whereby she works on top of a piece.  This means she doesn't often work with a sketchbook when creating digitally but has a series of files that develop a single artwork and these images show the development of a piece as a work in progress.
