Frequently-Asked Questions:

Actually, who is Rebecca?

Rebecca Duckett is a Malaysian. Born 1962. Spent her childhood growing up on plantations & around the jungles of Malaysia. Schooled on the estates & small towns of Malaysia, then in Kuala Lumpur, & onward to UK where she was introduced to weaving by Wendy Barber at Clayesmore School in Dorset. Started at University of Cardiff but realised a Bachelor of Education was not the way to go & applied to Parsons School of Art in NYC. While waiting to start at Parsons, Rebecca lived with Wendy Barber & John Hinchcliffe RA in Dorset UK & has remained inspired by their lifestyle & attitude to art & craft. At Parsons School of Design, New York, Rebecca studied printed textiles and woven design. Fabrics are her ultimate passion. Rebecca returned to Malaysia in 1985 and set up Owen Rebecca Designs with her husband-to-be, Owen David Wilkinson, promoting the flora and fauna of Malaysia through printed designs on textiles and resort clothing. Owen Rebecca Designs sold through their own stores & 30 consignment stores throughout Malaysia. After the crash in 1997, with a young family, Owen Rebecca Designs closed its retail outlets. Rebecca concentrated on her painting works. Rebecca & David moved onto Pangkor Island in Malaysia where they designed & built an island home, 'Tiger Rock' in 1995. Moving to Penang in 1999, they embarked on their 'Tropical Spice Garden' project in 2004, & 'China Tiger' in 2009. Whilst living in Jakarta for 2 years, in 2008 they built 'Tiger Blue', a traditional wooden phinisi adventure liveaboard in Bira, Sulawesi. Rebecca now works on her art pieces between studio's in Penang & Piemonte.

How do I purchase an original painting or artwork from Rebecca? 
It's easy! Just email me at and let me know which painting or artwork you are interested in. If you are visiting in Penang or Piemonte & want to view the paintings I'm working on in the Studio, please email me to find out a possible viewing.

Does Rebecca make prints of her work? 
No this is generally not something I do. However I do have my Dragonfly painting "Dragons on wires" in 2 sizes for sale. They are limited prints of 250 pieces per size, each signed & numbered. The print is also featured on small notebooks also available for sale. 

I also have for sale poster prints of "Like moths to the flame." & "Morphing- Flora & Fauna. Look to the stars.'

All are available to buy on my 'Art for Sale' page.

Will Rebecca paint a copy of an original painting that she has already sold? 
No I do not paint copies of my own paintings. However, you can commission paintings or artworks with the same theme as paintings that have been sold. Each of my paintings or artworks are one off pieces. 

How do I commission a piece of art from Rebecca? 
Please contact me directly via email and I can work out details with you. I prefer to get to know a little bit about you before I embark on a commission piece in order to ensure that we- me the painter, and you the purchaser- are on the same wavelength as regards the final piece. Where possible I do like to give the customer a choice so I tend to work on at least 2 similarly themed paintings when doing commissions.

How does Rebecca price her paintings? 
The prices of my paintings vary depending on size, material, length of time each piece takes me, and quite frankly, on how I value the painting myself. I certainly have favourites that I feel are special, better, or mean more to me. There are some pieces I will not sell. 

I am interested in purchasing a painting but I live outside Malaysia. 
Please send me your address details and I will get a quotation for the shipping charges. International buyers are responsible for any insurance, customs fees and tariffs that may be incurred. 

How will the painting or artwork be delivered to me within Malaysia? 
The painting or artwork will be packaged and then delivered to you overland by postal service or truck delivery service, depending on size of the work. The cost of transportation will be given to you before hand and will be added to your full invoice. 

How does payment work? 
Once you have decided on your purchase and we have agreed on details, I will invoice you with the total cost(painting + shipping + handling). Payment is by Paypal or direct bank to bank transfer. I will provide details on confirmation. Items will be shipped after full payment has been received. If you prefer another method of payment, I will try to accommodate you. 

Give me shipping details please. 
All shipping will be done by a reputable shipping/delivery company. I will package the artwork carefully and as necessary. If you would like to add Insurance please let me know and I will cost this in. I am not responsible for lost or damaged orders when shipping insurance is not purchased. 

Refunds and exchanges 
I definitely want you to enjoy and be happy with the painting you have purchased. In order to make sure you know the piece of artwork before it is sent off, I will send you a portfolio of photos of the artwork in different settings so that you can clearly visualise the piece.  Paintings may be returned if not fully satisfied and a full refund will be credited to the buyer upon safe return of the artwork. However, the return shipping and insurance is the responsibility of the buyer. It must be insured for total painting value and arrive in original condition for the refund to be processed.
