Based in the beautiful Hunter Vallery, emerging artist Rebecca Rath holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours from the University of New South Wales. She has also studied at Northern Sydney Technical College, a has undertaken a printmaking mentor-ship and many residencies. She has participated in many solo and group exhibitions within Australia, Europe, China and the USA.
Since childhood Rebecca has enjoyed exploring the natural world, often taking herself on long bush walks and immersing herself in nature; these early wanderings developed within her a deep sense of connection with the natural world and the Australian landscape. As an artist, Rath favours the experience of painting en plein air and aims to create a specific experience for the viewer by asking them to reflect on their place within nature and the landscape.
