Vanessa Otim

Vanessa underwent research into the Royal Historical Palaces and was based with the Collections Information Team at the Royal Collections Trust, assisting with auditing, curation and conservation.

Vanessa graduated in English Literature and Philosophy at the University of Sussex in 2018 but has been inspired to pursue a career in art and historical preservation. She has always had a keen interest in the arts, developing a portfolio of her own paintings in her spare time, and history, being captivated by the works of historians such as Lucy Worsley and David Olusoga. She is also fascinated by the complexity of royal history and the stories of lesser known figures and the impact that they had.
