Known for her quirky murals and street-art objects, Rebecca's ‘the Pillar People’ can be found on electrical boxes with these carefully detailed images often constructed in a light abstract way adding fun to our city's streets. 

Rebecca can be found at her Flying Spanners Gallery & Studio in Teralba. Loaded with character and featuring a small café inside it's one-stop you'll need to include on your Open Studios itinerary.
