The 2017 Uplands art festival


I have planned some very creative pieces and painting up a storm for this year’s exhibition. There is a varied selection of new art pieces that will be on display. As always, I am looking forward to this exhibition which opens on the Friday evening of 26 May, the whole Saturday/night of 27 May and for the morning of Sunday 28th of May.
If you would like an invitation to the opening on 26 May please let me know and I will arrange, otherwise we hope to see you there on Saturday or Sunday!

The Ingwe Research Project

Art Exhibition/Ingwe Project Launch

Will & Carol Fox of the INGWE LEOPARD RESEARCH PROJECT based in Hoedspruit, Limpopo SA, commissioned Vanessa to paint an Indian Ink Leopard, Mother & cub, Title; “Hope for the Future

This will be a special project limited edition, with 100 prints only. Each will be signed by the artist and the funds raised from this will go towards the ongoing Research of the Leopard.

Size of the print is approx. 40 x 70 cm and can be posted to anywhere in SA for  R980.00 inclusive.

“Foundations such as these will become vital to the survival of our legacy, as the earth’s natural resources are dwindling and space for wildlife is becoming a scares and sought after commodity”
