Born and raised in the Bronx to Dominican parents, Vanezza's upbringing was always rich in color, pattern and imagination. A mixed media artist, graphic designer and with an early education in fine arts and music, she graduated Cum Laude from FIT with a BFA in Graphic Design. After working as a graphic designer in the fashion industry, she pursued her MFA in Printmaking at Lehman College. Working as an Art Education Administrator and as a freelancer, she continues to explore her passions of drawing, binding books, taking pictures, creating collages, dressing up hats and other creative odds and ends. Her work explores ideas of body image and beauty, cultural identity and representations of women. Vanezza's preferred methods of work range from printmaking, painting, illustration, collages and graphic design.
