Vanessa is an artist and PhD student researching and exploring historical materials and methods for contemporary purpose. Inspired by the natural world she creates finely detailed drawings of flora and fauna, using the old fashioned dip-pen technique with home-made botanical inks.

Working with a Master Printer, Vanessa offers a range of limited edition Vercotype prints which have been lovingly hand-gilded or hand painted by Vanessa, using the finest quality Dutch gold leaf and/or watercolours.

With a strong love and commitment for the materials and enthusiasm for artisan techniques Vanessa also brings bespoke art supplies such as gilding kits, botanical inks, natural pigments along with a selection of beautiful Australian made Tasmanian Oak frames.
