Vanesa was born and raised in Argentina. As an artist and anthropologist, Vanesa believes in the process of creating art as an important component of identity and self-expression. During her career, she has explored a diverse range of arts expression that includes ballet, piano, visual arts, photography, literary arts, and craft.

Vanesa has worked for over 15 years in arts and education in Buenos Aires and Winnipeg, creating and implementing different identity/art programs for children and youth from different cultures, backgrounds, religions, traditions, and countries.

Project Samples

Trip to Argentina's imaginary Land

We explore some unique characteristics of Argentina's landscape through the artist own photographs and discover some of the Argentinean architecture as an inspiration to create a colourful imaginary place collage.

Human Rights Art Project

This workshop focuses on some past experiences of the artist growing up in Argentina and lessons learned. Will foster discusions and get inspired to create our own piece of art using diferent art media and techniques.

Art/Identity Project

Using different art media and techniques will dig into the family histories, traditions and name to create a unique piece of art with meaningful family memories.


Thank you for sharing your knowledge and your art work with the students. They were very engaged in the activity and learned many aspects about art and Argentinean culture.
