Rebecca Denton

About me:
My name is Rebecca Denton and I’m a painter/printmaker based in North London and create unique, handcrafted prints and original illustrations. My etchings can be seen permanently at the Southbank Printmakers Gallery and an edition of linocuts has been archived in London’s V+A. I work from my own rough sketches and ideas, combining various techniques for original outcomes.

My favourite product:
All my prints are my favourites and it’s hard to choose one! 
However, I do love the crafted, vintage feel of etchings (engravings) and enjoy every step of the process: coming up with an idea, redrawing the initial sketch onto a grounded zinc plate and then adding various techniques for tone and texture. The plate is inked for every print in the edition making each one truly unique:

My favourite place to find inspiration:
Everywhere really... my sketchbook, imagination and childhood memories.

Rebecca will be back for another year at Homeworks Christmas Bazaar on Sunday 10 December.
