Rebecca Hawkins graduated with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture from Central St Martins and City and Guilds of London Art school in 2001. Working as a full-time artist ever since, Rebecca is rapidly earning a highly respected reputation in the realms of both drawing and sculpture.
In both these fields Rebecca's work is united by the central theme flowing through her work - curves. In her own words Rebecca explains, 'I have always admired the way that nature, in its elegance and economy, creates the most beautiful of forms and curves. I love the way the light moves over a curve, the way the graceful curl of an unfurling leaf or rose bud is echoed in the curling structure inside a seashell, the sight of birds in flight or swirling fish. What intrigues me about these elegant forms and curves is their ambiguity and how this ambiguity can be reminiscent of different things to different people.'
In 2008 Rebecca spent three months in Nepal working as a volunteer for the Esther Benjamins Trust on a charitable project combining art therapy and vocational training in sculptural techniques to give victims of child trafficking a future.
