About the Artist
Vanessa Allegra is an Australian figurative oil painter with a style combining Old Masters technique with new contemporary aesthetics. She learnt the basics under the tutelage of Ryan Daffurn at the Brisbane Atelier in Queensland, and has been largely self-taught ever since. Vanessa’s work addresses the modern experience of women alongside human interactions with nature. She paints from her Studio Boat in Central Queensland, surrounded by rescued animals with overly flashy personalities.
