Surrounded by various forms of art from a young age, Vanessa was encouraged to find her own artistic voice. Graduating with a Fine Arts degree, she then studied abroad completing her post graduate degree in Teaching and Learning. 


Her mother, a florist, and her father, an animator, Vanessa's colourful style is clearly influenced by childhood memories of her parent and their passion for creativity in their respective fields. 


She is represented in galleries across Canada, and spends her days painting in her studio in Burlington, Ontario.
