Sefton Central MP Bill Esterson meets local business owner Rebecca Christian to find out how she uses her talent to help raise awareness of the Rimrose Valley Friends Group.
A web designer, Rebecca enrolled on a business accelerator program with the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, leading to her to start her own business in August of last year. She decided to follow her true passion of being an illustrator. Through an online shop Rebecaa sells fine art prints, greeting cards, cushions and will soon be offering fashion items.
Rebecca said "As a local Crosby artist, I am inspired by the beautiful surroundings of the nature reserves and stunning coastline. Living on the doorstep of Rimrose Valley, I couldn't resist using my skills to capture the beautiful nature I see every day. Using watercolour I have produced an artwork specifically celebrating the unique nature of Rimrose Valley wildlife, and will be donating 10% of every print sale of the piece to the Rimrose Valley Friends Group. This should help in their raising awareness campaign of the proposed road to be run through the valley space."
Labour MP Bill Esterson said "Rebecca's artwork is simply fantastic. It's wonderful to see a local artist gain inspiration from the beauty of their hometown. I wish Rebecca all the look in her new business, and hope she receives the custom and support to back her hard work.
