About : 

Rebecca Mayo is currently enrolled as a PhD candidate at the ANU School of Art in Canberra. She is a recipient of an Australian Postgraduate Award.

Through performance and printmaking her post-graduate research will examine anthropogenic restoration and degradation as performed along the Merri Creek Catchment in Melbourne’s north. Her practice will consider grief, loss and hope and its affect as it manifests in this locus and associated communities.

Rebecca teaches in printmaking at the RMIT School of Art and also prints for other artists from time to time. Recent screenprints printed by Rebecca for Melinda Harper are currently showing at Blockprojects in Richmond.
