Rebecca Brady was born in Sydney in 1977. Having had a passion for the arts since a young age, Rebecca graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the University Of Western Sydney. In 1999, she completed a Graduate Diploma In Secondary Education from the Australia Catholic University, Strathfield.
In 2004, Rebecca opened the first artist-run art studio and gallery in the Bankstown area. Her love of Art History and Education has also seen her continue to work as an Art Teacher at various schools across the state of NSW.
Since her first exhibition at the Foyer Gallery in 1997, Rebecca has continued to create and exhibit works including exhibitions at Penrith Regional Gallery, Tap Gallery, Darlinghurst, Art Moment Gallery, Bondi, MLC Gallery, Ultimo, and Sydney Art 09 at the Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park and more recently at Fairfield City Museum and Gallery. Rebecca is now establishing herself as a designer, fusing art and fashion together. Her first range from her collection Rathenart was launched for summer 2011.
“Colour, from an audience viewpoint is an intense experience which expands the mind and creates possibilities. I believe that when color is interpreted in its purest state and is seen as vivid and dramatic, a new creation can be made. As an artist and designer, I am interested in fusing color in multi layers; creating depth and allowing the material itself to manifest into an extraordinary form, idea, motif, or landscape for the viewer to explore. The act of painting as well as the interaction and communication between the conscious and subconscious plays a pivotal and recurrent developmental practice in my work in reference to what inspires me in the everyday world and who I am.” ~ Rebecca Brady
