After graduating with First Class Honours from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Becky won the Lord Williams Memorial Prize for Design in 2007 and was short-listed for the Linbury Biennial Prize for Stage Design in the same year. During her Masters in Fine Art (MFA) at Cardiff School of Art and Design, Becky was selected for the Sherman’s New Artist Development Scheme in 2009. Becky's design work was selected for the 'Make/Believe' exhibition by the Society of British Theatre Designers at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2015, and she judged the Costume Design category for BAFTA Cymru in 2017. Becky has become a fellow of the Higher Education Academy (2017), and most recently has been nominated for a STARS Staff Recognition Award (2019) at the University of South Wales for her work on the 'pART of Pontypridd' Art Trail, connecting students, art and the people of Pontypridd. This has now become an annual project. For full CV, click on the button below:
