Rebecca Jewell is a London-based print-maker and collage artist. Her work is a cross-cultural examination of the human exploitation and veneration of birds. Her intricate drawings of artefacts and bird specimens, and her unique feather collages (she has perfected a technique for printing directly onto feathers) are inspired by material culture and natural history collections in museums. Jewell has a PhD from the Royal College of Art (2004) and is visiting artist in residence in the Oceanic Department of the British Museum.
Jewell has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally. Her work has been purchased by the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, the Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, the British Library and the National Maritime Museum, as well as by many private collectors around the world.
