Vanessa Stone


Vanessa Stone is a collage artist based on the Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire border. She produces bold and delicate cut paper collages using a scalpel to draw into layers of paper. Her work is an abstraction of the land and townscapes around her. She captures the essence of the place with multiple layers, intricately cut away. She uses fine drawing papers and hand painted papers in her collages.


She is well known for her Cambridge & Hertfordshire based pieces, and her work features in private collections in the UK, USA, Netherlands and Norway. Greetings cards of her work are available in museums and outlets in Cambridge, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire; including here at The Art Nest.


Vanessa has two post graduate diplomas from Anglia Ruskin University under her belt, and has extensive experience running workshops for all ages at art galleries, museums, schools, and festivals. Her original specialism was in textiles as she trained in Carpet and Rug design. She is widely experienced in making and designing textiles for industry and the hand made market.
