Experiences with the natural world are at the forefront of Vanessa's artistic practice. Everything from form to color palette is a reflection on nature. Considered an interdisciplinary artist she enjoys working in any medium that allows for physical movement. Growing up she was involved with multiple sports (sometimes two at a time) and today practices yoga. Most of her life was lived in rural NY, surrounded by nature. Even now living in the city the natural world continues to be a large influence. She hopes to continue and further develop her artistic practice by showing work and looking for opportunities to engage with the artistic community.
