Rebecca Ritchie attended the foundation course at Maidstone School of Art in 1994, and started working in Television Set Design and became Head Of Design at QVC, responsible for the Set Design and Pack Shot departments. She had kept painting as a hobby, but decided to take it up full time in 2015.
Working in oils, Rebecca mainly takes inspiration from her daily world, in particular looking for still life and animal portraiture subjects. The choice of these objects and animated characters for her paintings, gives her a great respect and deep understanding.
Rebecca exhibits with major institutions in the UK and has been selected for important prizes over the years.
