Rebecca de Mendonca
Training in Theatre Design started Rebecca de Mendonca’s lifelong love of atmosphere, movement and drama. Pastels are her perfect medium, allowing her to simultaneously combine drawing and painting; making marks with energy, fluidity and precision. Portrait commissions range from dancers in English National Ballet, to Arabian horses. Rebecca is an Associate member of the Society of Equestrian Artists, and is also inspired by the landscapes of Devon, people and architecture. Rebecca teaches pastel courses in Britain and Italy, and is writing a book for Search Press. Exhibitions include the Pastel Society, and Artists of the Year 2019, at the Mall Galleries, London.
