Rebecca Webster-Lajmi


 

My name is Rebecca Webster-Lajmi and I originate from the Peak District in Derbyshire. I have just returned to painting and exhibiting after a break of 5 years. I have been focusing been a full time mummy to my two beautiful daughters and my son. From 2000- 2003 I studied for a BA (hons) in Fine art, painting and drawing at the University of Huddersfield. In 2005 I gained a PGCE in, secondary education, at Manchester Metropolitan University. Since completing my studies I have worked as a professional artist and have taught art. I have mainly taught in primary and secondary schools, as well providing small art workshops for adult education. Previously I have received a grant from Derbyshire County Council, which enabled me to provide a range of painting courses and one day workshops aimed at the over 50’s and rurally isolated. Additionally I was fortunate to receive support, funding and mentoring from the Princes Trust.
I adore creating paintings of flowers and still-life. My work often features fruit, berries, seed heads and leaves. My favorite flowers include tulips and poppies. All my work has been observed directly from life. My paintings do not aim to be botanically accurate but instead aims to capture the essence and colour of the object portrayed. Acrylic and watercolour are my media of preference. My images are very delicately and fluidly painted. Previous exhibitions include the “Artist & Designers fair” at the Pavilion Gardens in Buxton. “Zest Arts in Health”, at the clock tower gallery, in the Northern General Hospital, Sheffield. I have participated in the Derbyshire Open Arts event. Also at the “Art in the garden” event at the Botanical Gardens, in Sheffield.
