My name is Vanessa.

I like sun filtered through fog, redwood bark, outrageous expression, and signs of peace in this complicated world.


I design with friends at Paladar Studio.

We give visual voice to ideas and organizations, often in the form of a website or identity system. Do you need one? Drop us a line.


I paint to dissolve the illusion of separation.*

*It’s a daily practice.
