Rebecca Hawthorn

Rebecca was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand and has a background in design. In 2018 Rebecca made the decision to devote herself to her art practice full-time.
Rebecca’s practice is focused on large scale black and white portraiture. She was recently selected to exhibit at the Hibiscus and Bays Art Awards, and the Craigs Aspiring Art Prize.
Rebecca is currently exploring the idea of escape and escapism with regards to everyday life. She seeks to highlight the myriad ways we seek to escape ourselves and the ways in which society encourages us to strive for more.
