rebecca dearden


Rebecca Dearden's photographs and collages  tilt the world a little, tease and tell stories. She's exhibited throughout the UK, Europe, and the wider world as part of a touring show of artists' books.


She makes short films, writes and produces books and catalogues through her Elsewise Books imprint.


She makes sourdough with a starter called Dougie and has been known to play drums while walking on stilts.
