Rebecca at The Exquisite Wound exhibition at Silo Six in Auckland 2017

Rebecca Swan is based in Aotearoa New Zealand where she balances her time between her artcommercial photography and teaching. In a quiet seaside neighbourhood in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, her studio is a light filled room in a 100 year old house which she shares with her partner Jack, their dog, Honey and cat, Mr Frost. They grow vegetables in the back garden and have a 150 year old pohutukawa tree in the front.

For over twenty years her work has been published, exhibited and collected in Aotearoa and internationally. She won the S+ART award and recently received the Fulbright-Wallace Art Residency.
