Vanesa Oter, born in Melbourne, 1973, is an informal lyrical abstractionist whose paintings present as a symphony of the world that envelopes her. The vista is the local landscape, while her mark making, which constructs the image, is a layering reflective of natural weathering processes and gestures suggestive of the small discoveries of accidental beauty 'found'  within the patina of her urban coastal environment. Filtering through the layers are stencils, scribbles and road worker's signage. Oter is also an installation artist and a soft toy maker, comprised of everyday recycled materials. After a gap in study, including living overseas for six years, Oter graduated with first class honours from RMIT in 2006. She has been a finalist in the Metro 5 Art Award, 2006, and the Paddington Art Prize, 2009. Vanessa has held several solo and group exhibitions in New York, Boston  and Toronto, as well as Australia. Her work is in international and Australian corporate and private collections.
