Vanessa Liebenberg was born in Cape Town, South Africa and now lives in Perth, Western Australia. She fell in love with Australian fauna and flora and is drawn to nature, observing birds, flora and the way they adapt to their environment.

Her woven textile design background has a big influence on her creative process. A mix of screen printing, drawing, painting and a pyrography technique achieves unexpected, layered results in her work.

Vanessa is involved in Community art workshops, public art murals and book illustrations. She has exhibited in many group exhibitions in Western Australia and her work is in private collections in Germany, South Africa and WA as well as Collections of the City of Fremantle, Kwinana and Armadale.
