Vanessa's illustration class was game changing for me. She is a friendly, welcoming, inclusive person with a very natural teaching style and a great sense of humour. The clever tips she shared were easy to take on board and gave me confidence to think outside the illustrative box I've been stuck in! She gave expert tips in using drawing tools I'd never considered which made the world of difference to my work. I feel empowered after 5 hours in Vanessa's class with a new found love of portrait illustration.

I'm so glad that I finally had the opportunity to attend one of Vanessa's classes in-person after eyeing them off for a long time! Vanessa was extremely personable, funny and obviously very talented! She was easily able to articulate how she uses certain techniques and the results for each and every participant were so impressive in the end!! I've walked away with some small tips that transfer into amazing skills, more patience and trust in my abilities as an artist. Thank you SO much

I had a wonderful time at Vanessa's class. At first, I thought I was taking on a BIG challenge but Vanessa went through the process in small do-able steps and even after week one, I was amazed at what I had achieved. By the end of the 4 classes, we all had produced amazing replicas of our visual stimulus.
