Former London based artist Rebecca Thomas Robinson now lives and works on the beautiful Isle of Wight


Using ordinary, discarded and found objects, her approach is project based, process driven and underpinned by extensive research and detailed preliminary drawings.

Her sought after hand stitched textile pieces and mixed media paintings incorporate materials particular to the site of reference including antique textiles and hand crafted natural botanical inks and dyes.


She has exhibited widely in UK and Europe including National Trust and English Heritage venues.


A number of her works can be found in National Collections including Portsmouth City Museum.

Rebecca is an experienced Tutor, Creative Project Manager and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

She runs regular creative classes and workshops for individuals and small groups from her artist studio based at the historic Royal Victoria Arcade in Ryde and in inspirational venues throughout the UK.


Her current academic interest is in the neuroscience and psychology of creativity with particular reference to hand stitch and theories of 'psychological mending'. She is currently undertaking study and further research at Portsmouth University, UK
