Be sure to see below for the list of inspirations for each work.

Rebecca’s bio is as follows: “Each piece of work and the characters within are a study on the ever-changing relationships between fashion, food, interiors, art and the emotional state of culture.

“Inspired by the research techniques from her profession as a Color, Finish, Material Designer, she explores the histories of trending designers, visual languages of fashion houses, and personal experiences to build surrealist train-of-thought stories.

“With Adobe Illustrator as her tool, she turns these narratives into densely layered vector drawings reminiscent of intricate paper dolls. Every illustration transports viewers from the daily monotony to her imagined world of a glamorous, yet cheeky fashion insider.”
