Vanessa Heaver is an up and coming artist who was selected to design this penguin by the Shirley Village Collective.
For this project, she teamed up with the nearby Bunnings, whose community team set up a space for her to work in the garden section of the store, and interact with any customers who passed by. Vanessa has been fascinated with art since a young age and is continually looking for opportunities to grow, learn and meet other like minded people.
She says, “To me art is more than some colour and shape, but a story to be told within each piece that is created, that is why I love what I do.”
Vanessa created the No Bond is Stronger Than Family penguin, on behalf of the Shirley community.
