Rebecca Lardner is one of the UK’s most highly sought-after and collectable artists.
In 2008 she was voted the best new artist in the UK by the nation’s art galleries, and in 2010 she was named as the UK’s Artist of the Year. Since then her whimsical paintings have been featured widely in the media, demand for her work has soared and she has been dubbed ‘the modern day L.S.Lowry’.
Rebecca’s quintessentially British style originates in her Dorset upbringing, born in Swanage to a gamekeeper and post mistress Rebecca spent her childhood roaming the Dorest countryside and coastline, and it was here her love of nature and observing people was ignited and features still in her work today.
Her upbeat scenes portray the lively world of the traditional English fishing village from a contemporary standpoint, with an irresistible combination of quirky humour and technical panache.
The timeless subject matter gives these pieces a singular charm and the marine element is accentuated by the distinctive palette that never strays far from the blues, greys and greens of the ocean.
