Hey, I’m Vanessa, a maker and photographer living in London. I started out by taking pictures of objects and I wasn’t feeling it, as they didn’t have any purpose and weren’t showing something new. So I wanted to do something a bit more fun. Bizarrely, I have my short sightedness to thank for being able to look at objects differently. This is how my work comes about – looking at things in a different way and thinking they could actually be something else way more interesting than just a pretty picture.

My Balloon series was one of the first, and now I’m hooked! I love to share them regularly on my Instagram. Sometimes I’ll think of something and it will look terrible, however i’ll just keep going and usually get to a new idea. The process can sometimes be painful, but the outcome is always worth it.
