**A fun short video of Rebecca (& dogs!) wishing you Happy Christmas (2013):
Rebecca Lardner was born in Swanage, Dorset in 1971. She completed and Art Foundation Course that eventually led onto her graduating with a BA Honours degree in Illustration from the University of Liverpool. Fulfilling numerous commissions for high profile clients such as Paul McCartney, Rebecca Lardner has made quite a name for herself as an illustrator and artist. She has created many pieces for a range of magazines, as well as building on a successful career designing record sleeves.
Rebecca's artwork is inspired by the works for Cornish artist Alfred Wallis, as like him, the subject of her works are stunning oil on canvas portrays of life at sea or along the shorelines where land and sea meet.
Lardner fantastically captures the ceaseless activity that surrounds life on the coast, as her works include an array of boats, figures, and the on looking seagulls that are iconic to the British seaside scene. She also adds to the energy and movement of harbour life through the way that she imitates the natural curves of the English shoreline in her paintings. Lardner's interpretation of seaside landscape certainly doesn't belong to the genre of realism; however the colour palette she uses remains true to the greys, blues, greens, and sandy tones seen along the English coast.
