Vanessa’s art is represented in the guise of ‘Nessa the Fairy’ a real life fairy (pretending to be human) who spends her weekends at birthday parties – telling puppet stories, painting faces and dispensing glitter on anyone who gets too close. Over the last couple of years Vanessa has started to foray more and more into the world of body painting.
Nessa grew up in a magical garden in Murrumbateman, but has been moving around the country with her family since 2011 – living in Adelaide and Brisbane before moving back to the Yass Valley in 2014. Her time away introduced her to the work of many inspiring face and body artists, and Nessa is now using this inspiration to create her own portfolio of work. She is in the process of collaborating with a number of other photographers, models and hair and makeup artists to create some spectacular pieces.
In May 2015 Vanessa was invited to participate in RAW Canberra, independent international arts organization, for artists, by artists. She did live body painting, and showcased some of her other visual artwork as well.
