My Story

Hi! My name is Vanessa and I’m a proud Mexicana born in the state capital of the state of Mexico, Toluca de Lerdo. When I was 5 years old my mother packed our bags and migrated to California with her two daughters (my sister and I) in search of a better life and more opportunities. We ended up in the small town of Culver City, CA (which is a part of the greater Los Angeles area) and have stayed in the vicinity ever since. I started working at the age of 16 while also attending high school and in 2012, I was the first in my family to go to a University and graduate with a B.A. in Studio Arts from California State University, Los Angeles. Ever since I can remember I have been a very creative being, and my dream has always been to create beautiful things, provide for my family and not be tied down to a 9 to 5. I want to give people inspiration on finding their own inner creativity!
