My name is Rebecca Lee
Here is a little about what I do.
I work as a stage designer and commercial illustrator for theatre productions, music publications and events. I started my training back in 2004 at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts leaving with a BA Honours in Theatre and Performance Design.
Since then I have worked with a vaiety of artists, directors, companies and charities with whome I've created many new works that you may have had the chance to see or visit around the country in the past few years.
Three of my favourite projects to date would have to be:
1.Being a part of the creative team for OXFAM’S ‘Eight Stories High'. The event made a real difference raising in one single night and there was an array of brilliant and inspiring guest speakers who told their stories.
2. Designing and creating the artwork for Ellen Havard's 'Hurricane Boy' which toured around many of the country's much loved children's venues back in the Autumn 2015. Lots of young people had the opportunity to meet our boy caught up in a storm as he blew about the country. Did you get a chance to say hello?
If not subscribe at the bottom of this page as there may be more news on Hurricane Boy to come.
3. Working as designer for folk artist Kate Rusby's 'Underneath The Stars Music Festival'. There were many fab activities and things to do dotted around the site not to mention the wonderful music. I think I had as much fun adding the finishing touches with the crew as much as I did meeting all you folks who attended the event.
I have turned my her hand to writing and drawing some stories of my own producing picture book works for children. Many a new characters and friends are on the desk being scribbled, inked and brought to life as we speak. I am very much looking forward to sharing their stories with you soon.
