About Art by Rebecca Jane

A  little  bit  about  Art  by  Rebecca  Jane...


The wonderful artist behind every artwork sporting the '- Rebecca Jane -' signature or 'Art by Rebecca Jane' logo is the very talented Rebecca (Jane) Knowles. Born in Sunshine, Victoria, Australia in 1978. Rebecca loves to tell you that she was born in Sunshine and that's why she is such a ray of sunshine! Rebecca grew up in the small country town of Warrnambool, situated on Victoria's south western coast, a stone's throw from the Great Ocean Road.

Rebecca has always been artistic, in her early years it was quite simple to keep her occupied for hours, some bright pencils, paper and a plate of food and she could amuse herself quite well. During her school years Rebecca always had a case of Derwent pencils at hand. Rebecca's school projects were always superbly presented with exquisite illustrations and bright colours, even her school diary was a work of art.

After finishing high school Rebecca discovered painting...and found her media, acrylic paints and canvas. She decided to study a Diploma of Visual Arts through TAFE Victoria. Word spread and soon she was painting artworks for friends and family as well as being commissioned for murals and signwriting by local businesses and organisations. Rebecca also made her first foray into local craft markets with intricately painted toy boxes, jewellery boxes, picture frames, mirrors and many other items.

Two years later Rebecca finished her Diploma, her only formal education in Visual Arts. While thoroughly enjoying art, Rebecca also needed to earn a living, so art took a back seat for a time. Rebecca used her creativity to work successfully as a colour consultant and in retail stores, helping people match furniture and home decor.

She continued painting for pleasure and did the odd work on consignment and also dabbled in lead lighting. Friends and family continued to encourage Rebecca to take the steps required to get her artwork out into the world.

Late in 2013 Rebecca decided to escape the freezing Victorian winters and she moved to the warmth of Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia. Back in the sunshine where she belongs. The sunshine and warmth of Queensland re-inspired Rebecca to pick up her paint brush and take the steps to put her art out into the big wide world, for YOU!

Rebecca loves to create artwork full of life and colour, it is not just painting she loves, but many creative endeavours, including Bottle Top Fridge Magnets, 3d Paper Creations and Hanging Hearts. Her artworks are inspired by the sun, sand and sea of Queensland. The beauty of flowers, butterflies, dragonflies, owls and other parts of nature. Pretty things like hearts, intricate patterns, lace and glitter. Rebecca makes art to make happiness.

Rebecca hopes to bring a lot of happiness to you too.
