|| FOLIO - Landscapes, Gardens and Sculptures
The broad cannon of Vanessa's artistic
work ranges from the passionate expression of her landscape paintings
to the more intricate colourful compositions of her garden paintings.
In addition, her sculptures play an important part in her output,
demonstrating her love of form and visual understanding of personal
Working plein air in the spring and summer and in the studio
in autumn and winter, Vanessa produces landscapes inspired by
the border country of the Welsh Marches in Herefordshire. Recent
work concentrates on dramatic light and atmosphere, contrasting,
and monochromatic colour. All Vanessa's paintings are oil on canvas.
The garden paintings
are a celebration of vibrant colour and vitality. Usually a considered
composition echoes the formality of the garden view itself. The
highly acclaimed Hampton Court garden near Hereford is the inspiration
for many of these paintings. Vanessa also paints in the surroundings
of her own garden.
An experienced portrait sculptor and draughtsman, Vanessa takes
regular commissions for portrait bronzes. In these sculptures,
she combines an analytical technique with a deeply expressive
rendition of the sitter. She is currently working on a commission
of Frank Myers MBE.
Vanessa's work is in collections both nationally, and in the USA.
