Rebecca Swan is based in Aotearoa New Zealand where she balances her time between her art, commercial 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.
