About Me:
There's no other possible explanation...
I'm just outrageously Vanessa!

I am a children's book illustrator in Columbia, South Carolina. My fun, vibrant watercolor style is influenced by my love of Disney animation, Japanese anime, and the magical elements of fairytales and folktales. I also dabble in caricature work, either commissioned or a booked live event.
List of books:
