Rebecca Lardner’s distinctive oils are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds create an impression of ceaseless activity and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour. Her palette is based on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the canvas.
Rebecca was born in Purbeck, Dorset in 1971. After completing an Art Foundation Course she graduated from the University of Liverpool with a BA Honours degree in Illustration. She has gone on to build a highly successful career as an artist and illustrator, fulfilling commissions for a number of high-profile clients including Paul McCartney’s Music Academy, as well as a range of magazines and record sleeves.
Rebecca is now able to devote more time to her painting and has travelled the world from Ireland to India undertaking prestigious corporate commissions. She has exhibited in a range of galleries in the UK, Europe and the USA and her evocative canvases sell to collectors from all over the world.
