About Rebecca Christian
At 40 years old I finally gave myself permission to call myself an artist, despite having used my illustration skills in every job I’ve held.
Identifying myself as an artist has been a huge step…
Initially I gained a degree in Scientific Illustration learning to paint detailed and scientifically accurate illustrations of wildlife. It was difficult to gain employment with such a specialist skill so I went on to train as a web designer and worked for over 20 years in the education sector, for Liverpool University & Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
This experience helped to combine my artistic and technology skills.
Following redundancy and with two young children I decided to trust in my own skill set and set up in business. I initially offered web design services for the first few years of trading until through a business program I was encouraged to follow my true passion and skill of being an illustrator.
I am passionate about creating artwork inspired by my love of wildlife and nature, then using it to create surface pattern designs for products.
Recent projects which made me a Northern Design Award Finalist include the UK Heritage Collection, taking the national flowers of England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and creating a series of products including luxury fabrics and designer wallpaper
Inspiration is taken from the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserves and stunning UK Sefton coastline.
I love to be commissioned and enjoy creating bespoke products, providing a unique special item which has a personal meaning.
Many items are made to order, high quality and sustainably sourced in the UK.
Rebecca also has a particular skill for medical illustration.
Get in touch with your next project whether it’s commissioning a bespoke product/illustration or looking to licence surface pattern designs. I’d love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
