London’s self-taught artist Rebecca Leigh, who works under the brand name ‘seedofmemoryart’, has risen to success primarily through her instagram fan base.

Her modern, naive and whimsical portrait style charismatically captures characters of a bygone era. Her first painting was purchased by royalty three years ago, from a shop window on the King’s Road, Chelsea.

Rebecca was first discovered by actress and entrepreneur Sadie Frost, who kindly offered to host a private showcase of her work in Regent’s Park, creating a huge buzz and ensuring the subsequent success of her first collection.

Luxury, bespoke kitchen-maker Devol also supports Rebecca’s work, displaying her portraits in both their London and NYC showrooms, as well as online boutique Rocket St George, who sell a selection of her giclee prints internationally.

Rebecca takes regular commissions from an international client base and has recently finished work painting for a feature film, set to be released later in 2019.
