Vanessa B.

I was born in Annecy in 1974 and consider myself selt-taught in drawing.

I studied art, life drawing and painting, photography and interior design at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Annecy from 1992 to 1994, and also took private painting classes. I then went on to Grenoble where I graduated in 1999 with a MA in Art History.

I taught art in college and high school and decided to move to London in 2001 to improve my art and English skills. From 2005 to 2007 I attended the London College of Communication and graduated with an FdA in Visual Display & Design. I went on to work on different art projects: including design proposals for window displays, events and exhibitions, as well as set design and production. I also won private and public commissions for murals and canvases.

I took part in group exhibitions as well as a solo exhibition in 2009, at the Paul McPherson Gallery, in London. My most recent paintings are available to view (by appointment only) in my studio in Annecy.

In 2012, I made the decision to move back to France. It was not easy, as I had been contacted by the BBC about making a short documentary on my work. However, after careful consideration, I decided to return home instead, to open my own art studio and share my passion with people.

That dream came true in September 2014! Here I am!

I look forward to meeting you...
