25 July 2019 • Floral Illustration: Detailed Drawing Flowers

I had an amazing time in this workshop! I learn to much and by the end I was able to draw a hibiscus flower omg! I always learn a lot with Vanessa! She an amazing teacher and a really beautiful person! She is my favourite! I will definitely do more workshops with Vanessa


27 May 2019 • Colour Portrait Illustration Workshop

Vanessa’s colour pencil class made me so much more confident in the medium as it was pretty much a brand new medium for me. She’s very encouraging and I’d possibly the best art teacher I’ve ever had in my life!


15 May 2019 • Mother's Day Floral Art Workshop

The Floral Art Workshop was fantastic! Vanessa is an incredible artist with a really lovely energy. We learnt really useful water colour techniques, walking away with beautiful floral bouquet art (which are now on display at home). We had no idea how much fun we were going to have and how relaxed we were going to feel. We would recommend this class to everyone - beginner or expert! Thank you for a terrific day and here's to more workshops and bubbles!
