About Photo

Hello! I'm Vanessa. 


I'm a self-taught chalk artist based in Toronto, Canada, who hopes to broaden people's appreciation for the beauty and diversity of chalk as an artistic medium through 'everyday' activities like passing a sandwich board on the street or buying a greeting card for a loved one.

I can work in a range of styles but, in general, I am very inspired by nature - flowers, plants, animals - and the different ways we can enjoy these elements within an urban setting. I seek to capture the magic and whimsy of natural life in my illustrations with the help of the vibrancy and texture that chalk brings.

Most importantly, I hope to make people smile...
