Ralph Waldo Emerson
“ In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine.”
Vanessa Lawrence is a self-taught artist that enjoys creating still life and custom portraits. Vanessa was born in Texas but currently lives in Colorado.
Through the years, she has developed a passion for realism – a passion to understand form in its truest sense. Her desire is to continue creating works of art that capture moments in time that tell a story and to master the art of realism.
Vanessa studied art for a short time at Anderson University in Indiana and the Baker Hunt Foundation in Covington, KY. Her art has been displayed in art shows throughout the United States. She now works from her home studio in Colorado.
My passion is to create works of art that evoke deep emotion and capture moments in time that warm the heart. As an artist, I am drawn to realism and strive to emulate this in each of my drawings. I also enjoy creating beautiful movement though abstract expression. I currently work in graphite, charcoal, acrylic, and colored pencil. My subject matter varies widely to include human & animal portraits, still life and landscapes.
