Rebecca Hawthorn

Rebecca was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand. She studied design in the 90s and previously enjoyed a long career in the fashion industry. In 2018 Rebecca reignited her love of painting and made the decision to devote herself to her art practice full-time.
Rebecca’s practice has been predominantly focused around large scale black and white portraits. Currently she’s exploring the intensity and drama of portraits so blown out of scale that the composition becomes about certain features, rather than a whole face.
