My name is Becky Atherton. I am a UK artist born in 1968. I am an artist who has been able to explore and work on my own painting over the last 2 years after a 30-year absence; I am developing my own practice and am in the process of promoting and exhibiting my paintings.
The inspiration behind my work
The natural world is the main inspiration for Becky Atherton’s work and how she can promote the natural world in a magical, spiritual way.
Through her paintings, she wants the audience to be able to connect with their surroundings and have a deeper and respectful understanding of the natural world.
Her artwork is unconventional with a theatrical feel; she wants to find and celebrate Gods within the bird kingdom, in moths, flowers and in the moon.
