The Artist - Rebecca de Mendonca ASEA
Training in Theatre Design started my lifelong love of atmosphere, movement and drama. Pastels are the perfect medium, allowing me to simultaneously combine drawing and painting, making marks with energy, fluidity and precision. Portrait commissions range from dancers in English National Ballet, to Dartmoor farmers. I love to paint horses, and the people who work with them, as well as Dartmoor, animals, children and architecture. I love to share my enthusiasm for pastels, teaching courses in the UK and Italy. Recently accepted as an Associate Member of Society of Equestrian Artists.
