I’m Vanessa –
a (mainly) self-taught
jack-of-all-trades artist, with a philosophy degree.
I like to travel – and have explored a few corners of the earth..
but I am now based in a small town on Canada’s eastern shore, which has its moments….
Between paintings, I peel birch bark and draw on it, dotted by occasional crafting projects (which usually end well).
Some irrelevant facts:
- I’m a self-employed 20-something, living in a small town
- No religion, no husband, no children. Not a mantra per se… but for some reason they tend to be a common combo in the blogosphere.
- Addicted to potatoes and Kinder chocolate
- I like to listen to Jian‘s interviews and CBC’s The Current while painting, or, if motivation is waning, BBC shows and underrated comedy
I love taking photographs, even when my camera clicks send out “TOURIST” smoke signals.
The name of this blog derives from my two loves: birch trees and the ocean.
