The sequel to, 'Self-portrait 2016', 'Self-portrait 2017' charted important moments in Rebecca's life throughout 2017. 

Opening her own Etsy store, partaking in shows, having her zine as part of Tates library, losing a 10-year friendship, contemplating drugs; the embroidery accounts for highs and lows. 

 

Additional to tracking the emotional, mental and physical change in the artist, the piece also shows a clear improvement in the skill of embroidery.
