Vanessa Cannon

I grew up in Mossman and did my schooling here. I have one sister and eight brothers, and I now have 5 children of my own.

As an artist, I am most interested in Textiles and Fashion, Printmaking, Ceramics, Jewellery making and Fused Glass. I’m keen to continue developing my work for exhibition. And my ‘dream’ in life is to have my own business as an artist.

I have been exhibiting my work in group exhibitions since 2012, and have had my textiles and fashion designs shown in various fashion performances over the years. Most recently my glass and ceramic works were exhibited at Raw 2018, hosted by Norton Rose Fullbright in Melbourne.
