Vanessa Perske Paintings
Vanessa Perske, Australian Artist

Vanessa Perske

Since settling in the picturesque Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Vanessa is continuously inspired by nature and her unique whimsical style and energy is reflected in her work. 

Vanessa is known for her intense use of bright colours, detail of texture, patterns and layer upon layer of mixed media creating large artworks and commission paintings. Often described as versatile and adaptive, she loves to keep the spark in her creations and continuously evolves to maintain her enthusiasm and sense of fun. 

A fascination of nature and its complexity, Australian flora and fauna have become an emphasis in her work. Trees and flowers take on their own personality and structure creating curiosity and intrigue for the viewer. For Vanessa, artwork must be joyful, fun and full of colour with the objective to make you feel good. She is meticulous in the preparation of new work and can spend hours researching the subject and appropriate materials she will use, together with an instinctive ability to perfectly compliment the colour palate for each piece. 

Vanessa’s life has gone hand in hand with a passion for art since she was awarded a primary school scholarship aged 10 years. After completing a Bachelor of Education Degree, she spent a few years teaching in the classroom but quickly realised that her passion remained with paint and canvas. Vanessa followed that passion and in 2009 she became a full-time Professional Artist. Vanessa has held numerous solo exhibitions and has twice entered the prestigious Archibald Prize. 

Residing in the beautiful Queensland Hinterland with her husband Wayne and two children, Vanessa creates from her home studio. Vanessa Perske is a well-established self-taught Australian Artist, with many of her works and commissions in private and corporate collections throughout Australia, Europe, US and Asia. Her artwork is available nationally and internationally with shipping worldwide. 

‘I aim to deliver joy, happiness and warmth within my art’.
