Rebecca Howard

Artist & Freelance Illustrator

Hi, I'm Rebecca


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!

I also work as a freelance illustrator.  I have worked with several Bristol and London based publishers and design houses, including:

  • Alastair Sawday ('Special places to stay')

  • Sustrans (UK cycle network)

  • Sustainable Southville

  • Wiresky

  • Stanford Maps

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.
