Rebecca Lardner

Rebecca Lardner’s work comprises of her love for the seaside and a charming level of nostalgia. Her coastal colour palette kindly compliments her naive and Lowry inspired characters. Lardner’s work ignites humour due to the intentional imperfections of her painting style.

Rebecca’s distinctive oils on canvas are beautifully depicted portrayals of life on the land and the sea. The large ensemble cast of figures, boats and sea birds creates an impression of ceaseless activity, and this is heightened by the natural curves of the classic English harbour which provide movement and energy. Her palette is based strongly on the colours of the sea, with blues, greens and greys dominating the entire canvas.

Rebecca was born in Purbeck, Dorset in 1971. Rebecca completed an art foundation at Bournemouth and Poole College of Art & Design and then a BA honours degree in illustration at Sir John Moore’s university Liverpool. Influenced by the southwest and its coastline, her recent oil paintings on canvas depict life at the sea, especially harbours using  blues, greens and subtle tones to depict the scene. She went on to build a highly successful career as an artist and illustrator, fulfilling commissions for a number of high-profile clients including Paul McCartney’s Music Academy, as well as a range of magazines and record sleeves.
