Rebecca's work is based around two main subjects - the drawing of museum artefacts and drawing the natural world. She has a PhD from the Royal College of Art in Natural History Illustration.
Rebecca is artist in residence at the British Museum working on a project based at the British Museum ethnographic stores. She was artist in residence (2005-2010) on the Melanesia Art Project at the British Museum and is also visiting research fellow in the print-making department at Sir John Cass School of Art, London Metropolitan University. Rebecca is represented by the Rebecca Hossack Gallery in London. Hossack writes of Rebecca's work: "I find her to have a remarkably intelligent and scholarly approach to printmaking. Her work has a quiet authority and a humming beauty, that intensifies with closer inspection." Rebecca has a studio at the Chocolate Factory in Wood Green (www.chocolatefactoryartists.co.uk). The Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge has added images of Rebecca's work to their Artefacts of Encounter research page.
Rebecca runs drawing workshops for both adults and children, including at the British Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Linnean Society. Rebecca is visiting tutor at the Royal College of Art
