Artist and actress Rebecca Grant launches new art exhibition in Midhurst
Spokeswoman Melanie Pearson said: “Her previous works have sold all over the world, including in Paris, New York and London.
“His late grandfather Raymond De Longueuil was a famous artist from the south of France from an 11th century town called Navarrenx at the foot of the Pyrenees. Raymond was the 12th Baron of Longueuil, whose mother, Ernestine Bowes Lyon, was the queen mother’s first cousin.
“The line of Barons de Longueuil originated from Rebecca’s ancestor, Charles Le Moyne, who administered the French part of Canada and was the only royal title appointed and recognized by Queen Victoria.
“Raymond had a passion for boats, yachts, docks and skylines and so Rebecca found herself navigating this familiar path using mixed media – acrylic, colored ink, gold leaf and colored pencil. .
“During her early years, Rebecca was chosen by Prince Charles as one of 50 young British artists to commemorate her 50th birthday.
“The work titled Britain in its 21st Century was on display at Hampton Court Palace.
“More recently she continued and updated this theme with a much larger piece.
“This collection is called The Yellow Brick Road Collection. Rebecca says it comes from deep within her mind in relation to the current world around her.
“Other prizes include Young Artists Award finalist presented by Prince of Wales and Britain In Bloom competition finalist Princess Alexandra, exhibitions at Riverside Gallery Richmond, Philippine Embassy in London and Navarrenx , in the south of France.
“Besides being an established artist in her own right, you can recognize Rebecca in various TV shows as an actress.”
She has appeared in Holby and Doctors.
“Rebecca also announced two new acting roles.
“Rebecca stars as Nisha Baria in Showtrial, a five-part series for BBC ‘/ World Productions. Nisha is a calm but highly intelligent Crown Court lawyer in this hard-hitting legal drama alongside Tracey Ifeachor, Lolita Chakrabarti and James Frain.
“For the role, she imitated her late grandfather, attorney Ceferino Padua, a Harvard graduate who represented many poor communities in the Philippines.
“Rebecca is also returning for the second season of the Acorn TV production of Queens of Mystery, playing Natasha Young, a very nervous and demanding forensic surgeon in this cozy yet dark murder mystery.”
