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.
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.
