Vanessa Martin

I have always been an artist since childhood. My mother was a painter and a sculptor and encouraged me to try different art forms.

In college I experimented with every art form I could.

I currently share my time between creating Asian-Inspired jewelry made of gold, silver, and freshwater pearls and ocean-inspired abstract underwater acrylic paintings.

Art encourages me to expand my creative, spontaneous, spiritual, and intuitive side. Art creates joy, removes stress, and expands perceptions. It increases the level of happiness in people.

I am devoted to exploring through my Art. I currently create in my studio overlooking the Monterey Bay.
