Vanessa is from Yorkshire, England and moved to Sydney in 2007. She has a BA (Hons) in Fine Art in the UK but says her most influential moments came from great art teachers she had in high school teaching her to observe and absorb a subject matter before diving in.
Her mum taught her how to crochet about 10 years ago and she hasn’t stopped since.
