Rebecca is a multi disciplined artist with a background in set design and temporary installations. Influenced by traditional craft techniques, she handfelts each creature using British sourced fleece wool. The results are unique pieces full of character and stories of their own.
Having grown up in Cornwall and never been away for long, the pull of this county has an engrained impact on her work. 'Under the Wild Stars' is a soulful celebration of epic landscapes and even grander skies both familiar and foreign, and the creatures that roam within them. Set in the mountains we join an expedition into the unknown, on a journey through the wilderness and back to a place we call home.

From a young age, Samuel Winterbourn combined his natural talent for art with a passion for nature. Born in 1987 and brought up in the suburbs of North London, Samuel spent many summer holidays in Cornwall and in 2005 moved with his family to Carn Brea.
After obtaining a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Cornwall College in 2007, Samuel set out to create a distinctive style of work, inspired by a quote from artist and illustrator Quentin Blake, 'Don't worry about being a great artist. Just draw until you find your own style.by illustrators such as Arthur Rackham and Beatrix Potter and with an eye for detail and intricate pattern, Samuel combines a patchwork of influences into his drawings, creating magical artworks that capture the wild beauty of nature.
The animals Samuel particularly likes to draw are everyday garden birds and the diverse wildlife you find in the wild woods and broad landscapes of England. Ever present in his work are deer, foxes, hares and pheasants, and each drawing can take anything from two weeks to up to a month to create.
Samuel recently collaborated on cushion designs with local Artist-Designer Poppy Treffry, with Ulster Weavers on his very own textile range and he also has a collection of illustrated greeting cards published with The Almanac Gallery, London.
'Under The Wild Stars' is Samuel's first exhibition with New Craftsman Gallery, St Ives.
