REBECCA E SMITH

After discovering over 300 love letters sent during WWII from her Granddad to her Grandmother, Rebecca has been captivated by the sentiment, the nostalgia and the greatness of a true love story over the years of 1943-1946. Perhaps seen as a dated way of communicating compared to text message and email, we are unable to express ourselves the same way a hand written letter can. They reveal determination and deeper understanding. When we write a letter we think ahead and there is a great preciousness in what we write before putting ink to paper. These personal artifacts have highlighted how significant sending a letter can be and how life changing these letters were. Truly inspired by her Grandparents story, she creates sentimental one off pieces capturing the original handwriting, old photographs and vintage colours. The collection is ever evolving with the discoveries she uncovers whilst reading the letters.
