Born and raised in Vancouver BC, she is a self-taught artist who fell in love with drawing black & white portraits, 3D Art, and most recently watercolor and Acrylic Paintings. Vanessa spent a year as a tattoo apprentice, but realized her passion lies in her paintings, as well as in her small online business. Her inspiration for the love and passion of art, came from the quote "She never looked nice. She looked like art, and art wasn’t supposed to look nice; it was supposed to make you feel something"- Rainbow Rowell.
