Hi there! I'm Vanessa. Welcome to East Blue!
I've always been a maker of sorts. My most favorite and earliest memories I have from childhood all center around creating with my hands. Perpetuated by my parents and probably my grade school art class teachers, the idea that quality is something of character, something with heart and personality – warmth & realness – was instilled in me early on.
East Blue stems from this thought. These pieces I craft and meticulously paint truly flow out from my heart and appear before my hands. My whole self is in each piece, and that is what I want to share – joy, care, goodness, and connection.
Currently, I live in Tallahassee, Florida where I work full-time as a graphic designer. When I'm not thinking about, dreaming of, or making pottery, you can find me practicing yoga, being my best self with my life-partner Dylan, enjoying the ultra-sensory experience of nature, or cooking up and salivating over some plant-based deliciousness.
