There's no other possible explanation...
I'm just outrageously Vanessa!
I live and work multiple jobs in Columbia, South Carolina. These jobs range from drawing single illustrations to children's books to caricatures at live events such as birthday parties/wedding receptions to working in customer/food service.
You could say that I am a bit of a workaholic...
I graduated from Winthrop University (Rock Hill, South Carolina) with a BFA in Illustration. My dream is to make my mark in the world of children's illustration. I find the power of a child's vast imagination extremely appealing and strive for my artwork to provide positive and whimsical experiences using fun, vibrant colors and fairy tale / folk tale themes.
I also enjoy watching LOTS of anime and animated Disney movies; singing (mostly off-key); and wearing crazy costumes and colorful, vivacious wigs! I've even dabbled in some face-painting here and there...

As my personal motto goes:
"There's no other possible explanation...
I'm just outrageously Vanessa!"
