Vanya Lambrecht Ward

Vanya Lambrecht Ward is a visual artist based in the Northwest of Ireland.

Vanya works with a variety of mediums, and in her practice combines art, architecture, science and many other strands in order to investigate and explore how we experience, perceive, create and understand our environments (with a particular focus on soil and fungi). Often using the book-form as a key expression in her practice Vanya is currently working on a (long-term) series of book-works that bring together on-going findings, collaborations, citizen science, fungal activism as visual and written explorations that emerge from her research both in the studio and out in the field.

She holds BA’s in both Fine Art and Architecture and a MA (Art in the Contemporary World) from NCAD and since 2018 she has been a lecturer at YAADA, ATU Sligo.
