Vanessa Gardiner was born in Oxford in 1960 and studied at the Central School of Art & Design, London. Her work is held in both private and public collections, which include The British Academy London, The British School at Athens, Magdalen College Oxford, Huddersfield City Art Gallery, New Hall Cambridge, The Ballinglen Archive, Carlow Art Collection and Bournemouth University. She shows regularly at Thackeray Gallery, London, Quercus Gallery, Bath and Sladers Yard, Dorset.As a landscape painter, Vanessa is captivated both by the beauty of the places on which her work is based and by the processes involved during the making of the pictures. In a sense they go hand-in-hand: the immediacy of drawing directly from the seemingly haphazard natural subject matter with the careful selection and ordering of the compositions back in her studio. The wild Atlantic coastline of North Cornwall has been a long-standing inspiration for her paintings and it is the particularly beautiful area around Boscastle which continues to captivate her.
