Vanessa graduated from Heriot-Watt University, Scotland in 2013
where she spent four years studying textile print design. She was
also selected to study abroad at Philadelphia University, PA in the
United States in 2011.
Her observational work utilises many media, including watercolour
paints, ink, collage, waterclear resin, clay and wire. This helps her
translate line and texture from 2D and 3D subjects.
Vanessa's most recent collection of fabrics were created through
combinations of screen printing, digital printing, embroidery,
flocking and appliqué onto sheer and lightweight silk fabrics for a
soft and elegant finish.
Her work was shown at Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh and New
Designers, London in 2013.
