VANESSA BERLEIN

1986-1987: Studied Fine Art Diploma at Natal Technicon, Kwa Zulu. Completed 1st and 2nd year.

1998 – Completed a Diploma  Course in Prosthetic make-up at Face to Face College in Johannesburg, South Africa.

As an artist, I work predominantly in paint medium on board, paper and canvas.

My work is varied, but is concerned with  human emotional response and relationship to one another, the landscape and within abstraction.

I have exhibited and curated in South Africa and abroad.

In 2010 I set up The Haas Collective in Cape town with Francois Irvine. The Collective is primarily concerned with acting as a springboard for emerging South African designers and artists.

Between 2009 and 2013, I headed up the Art sourcing department for Cecile and Boyd Interiors.

At present I work out of Eastside Studio in Woodstock, Cape Town.
