An artist is hoping people will take pleasure in her work, which is on display in a Weston-super-Mare café.

Rebecca Weeks has always been creative, but she finally pursued her dream in her 30s by taking a foundation course in art at Weston College.

She then gained a degree at the University of the West of England, followed by a masters in multidisciplinary print.

Rebecca said: “I have been print making for the past four years so a relative newbie in the field of print.

“My current body of work reflects my own playful approach to creativity. I hope to achieve an emotional reaction from the viewer – one that invokes pleasure.

“I use the practice of drawing as a tool to realise the final idea in print form.

“I’m very pleased to be exhibiting in Loves as it is a major supporter of the arts.”

Rebecca’s work will be on display in the café, in West Street, until the end of the month.
