Vanessa Daws is currently studying for an M.A. - Art in the Digital World at NCAD. Since 2009, she has had seven solo exhibitions at various Art Centers around Ireland along with a three-month Artist Residency at Kilkenny Arts Office 2010. She has always swum, not competitively, or for particularly long distances; but when passing a body of water, be it pond, lake, river or sea, she usually takes a quick swim.

Her visual art practice is a dialogue between physical and digital mediums with water as the underlying element in her work. She also enjoys interactive art; art that moves, spins and allows the viewer to play with it. She makes swim films, all of which serve as research, training and archive material.
