Vanessa has been painting throughout her life, from as early as her school days. She is a fourth generation artist, the first one in her family to turn her hobby into a professional career.
“South Africa is a diverse, beautiful country and is so rich in culture and scenery. I draw my inspiration from nature and love going on road trips in the country side. I usually take the back roads instead of always travelling along the highway. There are magical moments to behold and the early morning lighting with long shadows and crisp air is nature’s gift to us each day.
I have good local support and encouraging international success. Some of my art has reached the shores of countries such as Australia, Belgium, Germany, India, Norway, the UK and he USA.”
Preferred mediums include oil, pastels and Indian Ink. Currently based in Hoedspruit, Vanessa undertakes and welcomes commission work. She also has regular yearly solo and combined exhibitions and her work is currently displayed in the Lowveld and Natal.
