Born in Glasgow in 1979, Rebecca studied Theatre at Glasgow University - her first play, was performed at the Arches Theatre in Glasgow in 2001 and at HERE Arts Center in NYC in 2002. Since then she has been steadily making work throughout the UK, by a variety of residencies, commissions and artist-led projects.
Her work in can be seen through a series of acclaimed projects - at times incorporating visual art, film, music and sound-art, often in collaboration with other artists.
She has a particular interest in Scottish culture and identity and in working across art-forms. She creates work about boundaries: between people, within landscapes, between layers of meaning, narrative and time.
Rebecca lives in Fife, Scotland, where she writes, walks, gives readings and workshops, works with other writers and artists and develops new projects.
'beautiful, lyrical work... a vision which is perhaps nearer the truth than we know.'
'Impossible not to be moved by these restless, shifting poems… This is a beautifully balanced work, a collection that is both unnervingly strange yet also life-affirmingly human.'
'powerful and richly contemporary...'
audacious and at times brain-poppingly clever work.'
