Artist Statement

Vanessa is a self-taught artist and has been painting for numerous years, more as a hobby, and art therapy until 2019 when she started to branch out. “As a self-taught artist, I am a firm believer that my pieces and the content of my artworks would not have been achieved in the same way had I been formally trained. It is what makes me… my art and their statements”.

Originally from London UK, Vanessa now reside’s in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France, where the beautiful un-spoilt surroundings have inspired her artistic skills to evolve further.

Vanessa works in a variety of different mediums and has a very unique style, which involves a lot of concentration and energy within, which she totally enjoys and can sit for hours on end immersed in her compositions.

Vanessa’s paintings are built up of many layers of paint, each creating it’s own flowing abstract, which she normally finishes off with ink or simply left untouched when using oils.

Vanessa love’s working with a variety of tools, from brushes, palette knifes to recycling an old debit/credit card, she loves different textures!

Vanessa’s Art pieces are vegan. She also likes to use old recycled frames, painting on the backing boards and defacing vintage Tapestries which are normally on their way to a déchetterie (landfill). Recycling is an important part of Vanessa’s life.

“Frame Me – Compost Me! – The greeting cards are 100% post consumer waste from the UK & EU, including the envelope & labelling. The clear display protective bags are made from corn/potato starch. The complete item can be thrown in the compost bin at END OF LIFE! Although one hopes, it would be framed as a keepsake (affordable signed ART). The paint & ink used on the cards is Vegan. So a very ECO-friendly and humane card/ART to gift.
