Hello! I’m Vanessa. I’m a video game animator turned ceramicist. I live in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. I began my career at the Neverhood and Insomniac Games. I received my BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in ceramics. After that, I focused on parenting my amazing kids. Now that they are teens, I’m spending more time in the studio. My husband says this isn’t a job interview so I don’t have to explain a gap in employment, but here we are!
