Rebecca Lardner is one of the UK’s most highly sought-after and collectable artists. In 2008 she was voted the best new artist in the UK by the nation’s art galleries and in 2010 she was named as the UK’s Artist of the Year. Since then her whimsical paintings have been featured widely in the media, demand for her work has soared and she has been dubbed ‘the modern day LS Lowry’.
Although much of her early work is figurative, her love of the distinctive coastline has been the mainstay of her success. Her upbeat scenes portray the lively world of the traditional English fishing village from a contemporary standpoint, with an irresistible combination of quirky humour and technical panache. The timeless subject matter gives these pieces a singular charm and the marine element is accentuated by the distinctive palette that never strays far from the blues, greys and greens of the ocean.
