Vanessa is a well established self-taught artist from the beautiful Bayside, Brisbane. She specialises in large mixed media paintings with many of her works and commissions in private and corporate collections throughout Australia and internationally.
During Vanessa's few years of primary school teaching, she immersed all of her time into this and desperately missed her art, her passion, her love. Once having her first baby, she had more time to paint which soon lead to a full time job.
Vanessa has been painting since she could hold a brush. At the age of 10, she was awarded a primary school scholarship for her art and regularly excelled in state art competitions during her high schooling. As soon as she left school, she started selling her work to collectors.
Vanessa's paintings are quirky, bold and colourful and she believes that art should make the viewer feel good when viewing it. For Vanessa, art should not match your home, but match your personality or personal experiences. We all need colour in our lives!
Vanessa's work is often described as versatile and adaptive. She loves to keep the spark in her creations and continuously evolve to maintain her enthusiasm and sense of fun.
