'In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.'          Ralph Waldo Emerson

















 "I connect to The Earth,

Great Spirit runs through me,

and I see you, I see you."













The Artist


From a young age Rebecca has been painting portraits of her family – animal and human!  At any opportunity she would sketch, draw and paint the dogs, horses, cattle or Dad sleeping in the chair.  One of her most unusual portraits was of her house goldfish during her time at Seale Hayne Agricultural College.




Rebecca runs an award winning organic farm with her husband John and has gained many platitudes for the care and attention which she shows looking after animals and customers alike. Rebecca rides her retired racehorse ‘Henry’ and qualified as an Animal Spinal Therapist in 2002.  Her clients include National Hunt racing yards, pampered pooches, prize bulls that won’t ‘work’ and a Siamese cat called Nicholas.






Over the years Rebecca noticed a sixth sense, a connection to animals in her life.  She would experience a special bond or mutual understanding while treating dogs and horses, even knowing instinctively if a certain cow was calving.  Rebecca worked with some world renowned Animal Communicators who help intuitive people hone their skill, and she finds this gives her a deeper understanding of animal subjects.


Rebecca’s art captures the spirit of the soul she portrays.  Her love of animals and eye for the individual character and traits of each subject is reflected in her work.  She is able to capture the ‘spark’, the depth and qualities of people, and portray this feeling to the viewer.  As someone commented on seeing one of her commissions: “it looks more like John than John!” 


Her understanding of anatomy and motion gives her portraits a three-dimensional quality and great attention is given to form so that they come alive on the page. The interplay of light and dark in Rebecca's work is remarkable.


It truly is Art with Heart.   

Rebecca is an exhibiting artist with the Society of Equestrian Artists and recipient of the Denford Stud Bursary 2016.
