9 - Becky Blair - An artist's journey of creativity, pain and overcoming.


Becky's work has always focused on the light and joy of living. Her paintings, filled with colour, aim to bring happiness through beautifully composed imagery. Since graduating in 1994 she has exhibited regularly in the UK and Australia and has work in collections around the globe.

In 2014, Becky was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Lupus. The following months saw her hospitalised, housebound, the impact to her joints leaving her unable to paint, the chronic pain rendering her unable to walk, eat and even sleep. At the time of our live event, she was exhibiting her first body of work since that diagnosis, which is a reflection of Becky’s journey back to better health.
