Vanessa Brassey's waterscapes, landscapes, and portraits celebrate the quiet euphoria of swimming in the Hampstead Ponds. Pictures will change throughout the residency. Greetings cards of the paintings are sold through her Etsy storeFor commissions, please get in touch via  email vanessabrassey@hotmail.com

Brassey makes paintings that are energetic, cheerful, and beautiful. They are not photorealist paintings, but increasingly she introduces elements of fine detail combined with a mischievous and irreverent use of colour.  Blending direct observation with photographic evidence and a bright palette the works convey how it feels to be endlessly beguiled and moved by the complexity and possibilities of our shared planet by capturing those transient feelings that make up the quicksilver of our lives.
