About Rebecca

I’m Rebecca Portsmouth, an artist based in Margate on the Kent coast in the UK. I create original works on paper and fabric designs that bring beauty, pleasure and connection into people’s homes.

Drawing and painting are central to my practice. I draw from life regularly, attracted by the honesty and energy in these marks and the connection it makes with the subject – usually people and their dogs. Photography also feeds into my work, a natural extension of a past career as a wedding and portrait photographer.

I create and sell original works on paper that are intended for the home as individual pieces or collections. A collection of fabric designs is due for release late this year.

Spare time is best spent cooking, listening to tango and blues and occasionally attempting cryptic crosswords. I love train journeys, random art workshops and my favourite chocolate is Green & Black’s dark Velvet Salted Caramel Intensity.

I believe every day is another chance to experience more beauty, pleasure and connection. If you feel similarly, you might like to receive occasional emails from me.
