Vanessa Mackie is a Melbourne artist whose paintings are strong and striking, intended to make a statement in any room. Colour and composition are key to her pieces. Mackie draws inspiration from designers' styling and on-trend palettes to produce pieces for modern living. Although her work is contemporary-abstract, it is also an illustration of joyful emotions, avoiding dark images and titles.
Always having an interest in interior design and colour, Mackie really started focussing on her artwork after having her three children, some years ago. Time away from her corporate career allowed her to tap into her creative personality to realise her interest in interiors, colour and styling through her painting. Mackie draws inspiration from designers' styling and on trend palettes to produce pieces for modern living. Vanessa enjoys bringing happiness to her clients with a piece of her art to be displayed in their homes.
"I love creating artwork for people to hang in their homes, which not only suits its surroundings, but also evokes different emotions to each viewer. A conversation starter for people to contemplate the way they see different images and meanings."
Mackie accepts commissions and successfully exhibits her works throughout Victoria.
