House and Garden illustration project

In 2019 Vanessa worked on a series of illustrations for House and Garden magazine alongside Garden’s Editor Clare Foster.

Vanessa was commissioned to produce six paintings which followed the changing seasons in Clare’s newly-made garden – from tulips in spring through to dahlias in her late summer cutting border.

These featured in her monthly ‘Diary of a New Garden’ throughout six issues of the magazine.
