Art director, graphic designer, and illustrator Rebecca Chew gives a hand-made look to traditional magazine spreads. She studied graphic design in Malaysia, under a program run by Nottingham Trent University. While there she fell in love with the printmaking studio and the darkroom. Throughout her career she has returned to the process of stitching, most notably creating vibrant masks inspired by the headwear of Mexican luchadors.
