How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Painfully precise.
My art teachers where always going on about loosening up and art being about feeling, well I felt they were wrong. I see a world full of details, a million hands all playing their part in moulding the world we see around us today, I see every brick, every stone and every cracked pain of glass. I paint everything I see, building are a tangible connection to our past and should be revered as the products of our ancestors. I honour their labour with my own.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I allow people see buildings through fresh eyes and they get to fall in love with them all over again.
I'm a maker of visual records, every brick, every pain of glass and carved piece of wood was the product of someone else's hands, their labour, skill and very survival is in the fabric of the greatest building ever made on this earth, we are the guardians of these buildings and the product of their labour.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I've been called many things, but I call myself Vanessa Rhead.
