Rebecca Alleway

Set Decorator

I completed my BA honours in Theatre Design at Wimbledon School Of Art and went on to complete the postgraduate Motley Theatre Design course at the Almeida Theatre.

After completing my studies I worked on music videos and commercials as an art director for a number of years before moving into set decoration.

I have been set decorating for over for over twenty-five years which has taken me all around the world.

This website shows of some of my projects that I am most proud to have been a part of and shows the diversity of my work.

Rebecca initiated her set decoration career in the theatre, spending two enriching years mastering the art of set and costume decoration. She later broadened her scope, diving into the vibrant world of music videos and television commercials as an assistant and Art Director. Over twenty-five years ago, Rebecca transitioned into her role as a set decorator, applying her set decorating skills to create memorable scenes for films and television.
 
Added: Her prowess as a set decorator hasn't gone unnoticed. In 2009, her set decoration on The Duchess earned her an Academy Award nomination. Following this, her set decoration skills in Cloud Atlas garnered multiple awards and a 2013 nomination from the Art Directors Guild. Her recent work on Murder on the Orient Express resulted in both a nomination for an Art Directors Guild Award and the Best Production Design and Set Decoration accolade at the BFDG awards.
