Rebecca Howard

Artist & Freelance Illustrator


I will be showing work at this year's Southill Park Craft and Design Fair this weekend... For more information go to :

I will be stocking my work in a new gallery in Henley ... Tiny gallery, Hart Street, Henley on Thames is opening its doors on Friday 26th May 2017.  I will have original artworks and lots of my prints and cards available to buy.


Thank you!  To those who came to my studio over the Henley Arts Trail  weekend...We had over 400 visitors over the Bank holiday weekend! If you missed out this time feel free to email me and I will add you to my list for the next open studio Event.... this October.









I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts in 2004, where I studied Illustration. Since then I have worked as both an Illustrator and Artist, creating bold and fun illustrative pieces for both publishers and individual commissions.

My paintings are inspired by the waterways of England with a strong emphasis on the urban landscape. There are more than 50 paintings in my collection, with more being created all the time. They depict London, Bristol, Bath, Clevedon, Henley-on-Thames, Windsor, and Brighton, just to name a few. These works are available as original oil paintings, or where the original is sold most images are also available to buy as Gicleé or canvas prints. 

I have been commissioned regularly over the years. This is a great way of having a painting personalised with members of the family, a familiar place or extra quirky editions – Please email me with your ideas!

Recent projects include, working with Wild in Art and Stanford Maps, to create 'Maporilla’, a life-size fibre-glass Gorilla, illustrated with a map of Bristol.
