Rebecca is a London-based print-maker and collage artist. Her work is a cross-cultural examination of the human exploitation and veneration of birds. Her intricate drawings of artefacts and bird specimens, and her unique feather collages, are inspired both by material culture collections in museums (traps, cages, bird specimens), and issues around the contemporary hunting and trapping of birds, particularly in the Southern Mediterranean. Using a technique she has perfected for printing images onto feathers, Rebecca collages these feathers into assemblages representing headdresses and capes and other 'artefacts.'

Rebecca has a PhD from the Royal College of Art (2004) and is artist in residence in the Oceanic department of the British Museum. She has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally. Her work is held in the British Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology as well as in many private collections.
